SAN DIEGO The Navy is investigating the fatal shooting of a sailor aboard a destroyer undergoing maintenance at a San Diego shipyard.

Navy Lt. Cmdr. Brad Fagan says 32-year-old Gregory Egan of Ridgefield, Conn. died last Sunday. Egan was killed on the deck of the destroyer Halsey, according to the Danbury News-Times.

Egan's mother told the News-Times in Connecticut that her son died of a gunshot wound to the head after another sailor's weapon misfired.

Fagan said he could not comment on the circumstances of the shooting due to an ongoing probe by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Egan attended the University of Massachusetts and his family lives in Springfield, where funeral services are planned Monday.

His mother says Egan and his wife met while pursuing acting jobs in New York City before moving to California, where he joined the Navy two years before his death.
