PRESS RELEASE: Camp Lejeune Identifies Fallen Marine in Main Gate Shooting

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. – Lance Cpl. Mark N. Boterf, 21, of Crowley, Texas, died April 8 after receiving a single gunshot wound to the chest while on sentry duty at Camp Lejeune's Main Gate. He was assigned to 2nd Radio Battalion, II Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group aboard Camp Lejeune. He was temporarily assigned to Headquarters and Support Battalion, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune as a Marine sentry.

Born on December 18, 1992, Boterf joined the Marine Corps in August 2012. He joined 2nd Radio Battalion in 2013, served as a Special Intelligence System Communicator (MOS 2651) and was promoted his current rank on October 1, 2013.

His awards include the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and National Defense Service Medal.

Lance Cpl. Boterf has no deployment history.

The initial assessment from NCIS officials earlier today indicated that the shooting death of the Main Gate Marine sentry was likely caused by a negligent discharge, however it will take several weeks of forensic examination to confirm this with absolute certainty.

“I ask ... that your hearts and prayers go out to the family and to the community as a whole; to the Marines and all the civilian Marines who work on this base and all of the Onslow County Community. It’s a tough loss for us and we will get through it as a community,” said Brig. Gen. Robert F. Castellvi, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East - Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

Hard to think positively especially when a rifle is supposed to be in safe position until ready to fire. Altercation or serious looks at hand me down weapons. Sad loss.
