Ryukyu Shimpo and Okinawa Times wrote on Saturday that concerning the incident in which a bullet was found inside a farm shed near Range 10 on Camp Schwab in Nago on June 21, 2018, the Okinawa police sent papers to prosecutors on Friday on charges of attempted murder and property damage without identifying suspects. Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that although the U.S. military has admitted that a Marine expedition unit conducted a live-firing drill at the camp on the day of the incident, the police could not obtain from the U.S. side information on the individual service members involved in the drill and the equipment used in the training. Okinawa Times wrote that the Naha prosecutors’ office will likely drop the case because the Japanese side does not have primary jurisdiction over cases involving on-duty activities by U.S. personnel under the U.S.-Japan Status of Forces Agreement.
