The first of yesterday’s shooting victims has been id’d by family as 23yo Joshua Kaleb Watson: “Heavily wounded, he made his way out to flag down first responders and gave an accurate description of the shooter…He died serving his country.” https://t.co/qXm64fOEcw

R.I.P., gallant sir.
Family members have identified Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, a recent graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, as one of the victims of Friday’s shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola.
“Joshua Kaleb Watson saved countless lives today with his own,” wrote his brother, Adam Watson, late Friday. “After being shot multiple times he made it outside and told the first response team where the shooter was and those details were invaluable.
“He died a hero and we are beyond proud but there is a hole in our hearts that can never be filled.”
