Mark Shields is a sergeant first class in the Minnesota National Guard, Maj. Kristen Auge confirmed on Monday.
The readiness noncommissioned officer for the 850th Horizontal Engineer Company in Cambridge, Minn., Mark Shields has been serving in the Guard since late 1989 and was deployed to Iraq from September 2004 to November 2005.
Auge added, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.”
Neighbor Michael Calva, 30, said Monday morning that he was “just blown away” by the deaths at the Shields home. “This is just a typical, quiet home, the home where you’d never expect anything like this to happen,” he added.
Calva said that when he came home from church Sunday, after the bodies were discovered, a law enforcement officer at the scene told him that the deaths were suspicious but that there was nothing for him to worry about.
