    " “Petty Officer Mayo’s actions on Monday evening were nothing less than heroic. He selflessly gave his own life to ensure the safety of the Sailors on board USS Mahan (DDG 72),” said Capt. Robert E. Clark, Jr., commanding officer, Naval Station Norfolk. “Petty Officer Mayo’s family has endured a tremendous loss, as have the men and women of Naval Station Norfolk, in the loss of a shipmate and friend.”

    Except in the provided quote there is no element of a DGU, rather assault with a deadly weapon.

    True enough - in the linked article we see:
    "He immediately responded to render assistance and engaged in gunfire with Savage."

    I take that to mean there was a gun used by the Petty Officer.


    I don't quote entire articles, as I consider that to be excessive in the fair use of copyright.

    Not to split the hair too much, but it only takes one firearm with two people for both to be 'engaged' in gunfire if one is shooting at the other. 'Exchanging' gunfire would indicate each had their own gun.
