    Marine found dead from ‘apparent gunshot wound’ in Quantico

    A United States Marine corporal was found dead on Sunday "from an apparent gunshot wound" at the U.S. Marine Corps Base in Quantico, according to a statement from the Quantico Marine Corps Base.

    The Provost Marshals Office responded to a 911 call and found Corporal Daniel B. Vilevac, a native of North Olmstead, Ohio, "unconscious in his residence and secured the scene," the statement read. Fire and Emergency Medical Services later arrived and declared Vilevac deceased at the resident.

    This would be the second fatal incident from a shooting at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico this year. In March, authorities said Sgt. Eusebio Lopez shot and killed himself along with Lance Cpl. Sara Castromata and Cpl. Jacob Wooley at the base.

    Vilevac's wounds apparently occurred from an "isolated incident that took place at his residence in on-base housing late Saturday night," according to the Marines, who notified his next-of-kin about what happened.

    Naval Criminal Investigative Service "arrived shortly after PMO" and is investigating the death, stated the report.

    According to the statement, Vilevac "was a rifleman assigned to Combat Service Support Company, The Basic School, where he was an enlisted squad advisor. He joined the Marine Corps in 2008.

    "Vilevac's awards include the Good Conduct Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Presidential Unit Citation, Navy Unit Commendation, NATO/International Security Assistance Force Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Afghan Campaign Medal, and the National Defense Medal."

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with Cpl. Vilevac's family, fellow Marines and friends following this tragic incident," said Col. Todd S. Desgrosseilliers, commanding officer of TBS. "Supporting and taking care of those affected by this loss is our top priority at this time."

    Calls placed to Town of Quantico Mayor Kevin Brown and town Police Chief John Clair were not immediately returned Monday morning.
