The Army has identified Command Sgt. Maj. Carlos Evans as one of four victims killed Tuesday in a shooting at another sergeant major’s home in Sumter, South Carolina, just nine miles from Shaw Air Force Base.
The suspect, Charles Slacks Jr., was an Army veteran and civilian worker at the base and the ex-husband of Army Sgt. Maj. Aletha Holliday, chief culinary manager at Shaw. Police say he went into Holliday’s home late Tuesday night, shot Evans and proceeded to murder his own children and his stepdaughter.
The children were Aayden Holliday-Slacks, 5; Aaron Holliday-Slacks, 6; and Ava Holliday, 11.
Slacks died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
