Pfc. Glendon Oakley, 22, who was credited with getting children to safety during the Aug. 3 mass shooting in El Paso, was no longer listed in the Bell County Jail Friday morning and will soon face military charges, officials said.
“Pfc. Oakley was absent without leave and was apprehended pursuant to a military administrative warrant,” according to an email from Army officials at Fort Bliss, where Oakley is stationed. “Pfc. Oakley is in police custody pending return to Ft. Bliss where the chain of command is prepared to receive the Soldier and address the issue according to applicable laws, regulation, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Out of respect for the Soldier’s privacy, no further information will be released at this time.”
