Most residents at the complex yesterday afternoon said they
stayed inside their apartments Sunday night after the shots
were fired to avoid getting caught up in the incident.
“There were police everywhere,” one resident said.
Police tape was still up on the backside of the complex in a

Afghan police officer kills six U.S.service members
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP — An Afghan border policeman
killed six American servicemen during a training mission
Monday, underscoring one of the risks in a U.S.-led program
to educate enough recruits to turn over the lead for security to
Afghan forces by 2014.
The shooting in a remote area near the Pakistani border
appeared to be the deadliest attack of its kind in at least two
years. Attacks on NATO troops by Afghan policemen or sol-
diers, although still rare, have increased as the coalition has
accelerated the program. Other problems with the rapidly
growing security forces include drug use, widespread illitera-
cy and high rates of attrition.
