Zach­ariah Eason McRee, 32, was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

McRee and his estranged wife, Heather, were arguing at their Grove Landing Circle home about their pending divorce when he pulled a .45-caliber handgun and shot her in the left arm about 3 a.m., said Grovetown De­part­­ment of Public Safety Chief Gary Owens.

Heather McRee was treated and released from Georgia Regents Medical Center, according to a hospital spokesman.

Zachariah McRee, a soldier, initially told police that the gun accidentally went off, Owens said. He was being held in the Columbia County Detention Center on a $30,200 bond, according to jail records.

He is a black op for the CIA
Unpublished

His use of a handgun is in support of Obama's agenda. He is an urban terrorist raising the awareness of gun violence.

I think it's safe to now say

I think it's safe to now say that "he USED to be a soldier"- just the lying to investigators will take care of his now-former career
