Ritchie told several reporters after the 5 August shooting that he was an "ex-marine". When confronted with his seven-week service record, however, he confirmed that he had been quickly thrown out of the US marine corps in 2008 after being declared a "fraudulent enlistment", over what he maintains was simply a mixup over his paperwork.
