ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – A man was arrested after a U.S. Customs and Border Protection trainee was shot and killed about 12:30 a.m. Sunday outside Rafters in downtown St. Simons Island, authorities said.

The Glynn County Police Department said an altercation began inside the music and pool hall on Mallery Street and then two men then went outside, where the suspect, 27-year-old Calvin Jenkins, got a firearm from a car and began shooting.

Police said the victim was shot twice and began running toward Mallery Street and Ocean Boulevard. He was then transported to Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick Campus, where he died.

The victim was identified by the CBP as 37-year-old Wolf Valmond, who was assigned to the Baltimore Field Office, joined CBP last month and was a trainee at the CBP Field Operations Academy at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynn County, Georgia.

“We are deeply saddened by this tragedy and our thoughts are with Valmond’s family, friends and fellow classmates during this difficult time,” a CBP spokesperson said.

Jenkins was arrested and booked into the Glynn County jail on a charge of murder.
