Three Navy sailors were killed in the attack and several others were wounded
The families of three U.S. service members killed at Naval Air Station Pensacola have sued Saudi Arabia over its role in the Dec. 6, 2019 attack.
Saudi Air Force 2nd Lt. Mohammed Saeed Al-Shamrani was a flight student enrolled in the Security Cooperation Education and Training Program and while wearing his Saudi Air Force uniform, he fired hundreds of rounds of ammunition killing three Navy service members; severely wounding four sailors, a Navy civil servant, seven sheriff’s deputies and a Department of Defense police officer.
According to the lawsuit, Saudi Arabia knew of Al-Shamrani’s radicalization and anti- American sentiments, which were publicly associated with a Twitter account bearing his name.
