Statement from the family of Cpl. Kevin Megeney
 
His uncle, George Megeney, said the family was informed of the incident around 10 a.m. today. Cpl. Megeney went to Afghanistan in the fall as a volunteer with the Nova Scotia Highlanders Militia.

He was apparently in his tent when he was shot, his sister Lisa said from the Stellarton home of her parents, Dexter and Karen Megeney. "It was friendly fire, thatís all I know," she said through tears.
