Marines formally identify Iraq victim


CAMP LEJEUNE (AP) -- The Defense Department has identified a Camp Lejeune Marine whose family said apparently was fatally shot while on guard duty.

Corporal David P. Lindsey died Friday. The military says only that Lindsey died in a non-hostile incident that was being investigated.

The 20-year-old Marine's father says the family was told Lindsey was shot in the head and may have been on guard duty at the time.

Lindsey was a member of the Third Battalion, Sixth Marine Regiment, Second Marine Division at Camp Lejeune.
