"I think it's just telling that it's on the one-year anniversary of his friend who killed himself," Councilman Joe Woods said Friday about Bradley, who was believed to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office said Friday that the names of the three deputies who shot and killed Army Staff Sergeant Travis Boyd Bradley, who was assigned to Aberdeen Proving Ground, would not be released.

The Sheriff's Office, citing its past practice and procedure, said the names of the deputies, who are on routine administrative leave, would not be released because they were part of the tactical deployment in the standoff that turned deadly Wednesday afternoon and evening outside of Bradley's house on Althea Court in Bel Air South.

The Sheriff's Office took a similar position against releasing the names of deputies involved in a shooting incident following the Sept. 28, 2013 fatal shooting of 34-year-old Austin Francis Jones inside a Havre de Grace house where police say Jones was holding a woman hostage and had pointed an object, which looked like a firearm, out the window at police.
