Connecticut soldier killed in Afghanistan
Madison (AP) — The first selectman of Madison said a soldier from the town was been killed in Afghanistan.
First Selectman Fillmore McPherson said Tuesday the parents of Army Capt. Andrew Pederson-Keel, who live in Madison, were informed Monday of his death. McPherson said flags in Madison have been lowered to half-staff.
McPherson said Pederson-Keel was one of two soldiers killed in an attack at a police station in eastern Afghanistan.
U.S. officials said have said two special forces soldiers were killed Monday when a policeman fired at people leaving a meeting at district police headquarters in Wardak province. The Pentagon has not released their names.
McPherson said Pederson-Keel graduated from Avon Old Farms School in 2002 and the U.S. Military Academy in 2006.
