Officials said on Sunday that a Utah mayor serving in Afghanistan was killed and another service member was wounded in an apparent “insider attack.” Maj. Gen. Jeff Burton, Utah’s adjutant general, said at a news conference Sunday afternoon that North Ogden Mayor Brent Taylor — a major in the Utah National Guard — was killed in the apparent insider attack while serving with his unit in Kabul on Saturday. Burton said Taylor, 39, was “a man of excellence” and an “amazing human being” who was killed while serving in his fourth deployment. Taylor announced on Facebook in January that he was embarking on a one-year deployment to Afghanistan as part of an advisory team training the staff of an Afghan commando battalion. “Serving as mayor of North Ogden city has been one of the greatest honors of my life and the highlight of my civilian professional career,” he said. Taylor became mayor in 2013 after having served on North Ogden’s City Council. He leaves behind a wife and seven children.
