“The Defense Department is looking into whether two U.S. Army Rangers who died Wednesday may have been killed by friendly fire, according to a Pentagon spokesman. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters Friday that the deaths of Sgts. Joshua Rodgers, 22, of Bloomington, Ill., and Cameron Thomas, 23, of Kettering, Ohio, occurred during a raid on ISIS militants in Afghanistan. He said that ‘some of the initial indications’ suggest friendly fire is to blame for the casualties. Davis added that there is ‘no indication’ of any intentional attacks by Afghanistan soldiers on American troops.” (04/28/17)
