Pvt William Andrew Long
Birth: Jun. 26, 1985

Los Angeles County
California, USA
Death: Jun. 1, 2009
Little Rock
Pulaski County
Arkansas, USA

Police say a man with "political and religious motives" confessed to fatally shooting a new soldier and wounding another Monday in a targeted attack on a military recruiting center. The shootings were not believed to be part of a broader scheme. William Long, 23, of Conway, died in the attack on the Army-Navy Career Center in a west Little Rock shopping center. Another soldier, Quinton Ezeagwula was wounded. Both men were in fatigues and had recently completed basic training. The two volunteered to work at the recruiting center to attract others to the military. They had just completed basic training and were not regular recruiters. Police arrested Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23 of Little Rock for the shooting.
