(UP) — Two American soldiers were shot to death from ambush last night while sitting in a jeep In the residential section of Nuernberg, the Army announced today. Both men died en route to an Army hospital. They were shot on a street lined with American Army and civilian billets. An American girl. Rose I, Korb of Gary, Ind.. was in the jeep with the soldiers. She is a veteran of four years In the War Department at Washington and is now a civilian employe in the office of Internal Security at the Nuernberg courthouse. Reports conflicted ns to how many persons were in the joep. One army man said the two soldiers and two women were in the vehicle. Other sources said that U' t contained a third soldier and three women, the American girl and two British women. Army investigators refused to let correspondents see Miss Korb. "This case has so many angles and is so complicated we can't let, anyone say anthing right now," a spokesman said. The provost marshal's office rc- pprled that the shooting victims were attached to tlie Stars and Stripes at Hoest, a suburb of Frankfurt. Identity of the victims was withheld pending notification of relatives. Except for the slain soldiers, no one else In the jeep was injured. A former combat soldier who was in one of the nearby billets said the shots sounded like those of a U. S. Army carbine. "Ah expert marksman must hav; fired the shots from extremely short range to get two perfect hits out of thre e shots fired," an Army Investigator said. "Whether a German or other foreigner, or. ah American was involved ire do not yet.know." (Buidahce Urged Erprri.
