(Via Best of the Web) U.S. Marines Say They Killed Haiti Gunman:
The marchers ended up on the vast Champs de Mars plaza in front of the National Palace and chanted that Aristide stand trial for alleged corruption and killings committed by his armed militants.

Several witnesses said they saw Aristide militants open fire from the roof of the Rex movie theater across the plaza.

U.S. Marine Col. Charles Gurganus said gunfire broke out on the northeast corner of the plaza and several people were wounded before Marines spotted two gunmen. When the gunmen tried to attack the Marines, the troops shot and killed one of them, he said, adding that he did not know what happened to the other man.

Asked how he knew the man killed was a gunman, Gurganus said: "He had a gun, and he was shooting at Marines. That's what I call a gunman."
Indeed and now he's dead. That's what I call a gunman who shoots at Marines.
