Another possible explanation:
A special forces guy from fort Bragg was killed in Afghanistan. They were probably shooting those off in honor of him… #respect

The Defense Department has released the names of North Carolina and Georgia-based soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
The Pentagon says the soldiers died Monday in Jalrez District, Afghanistan when they were attacked by small arms fire.
Twenty-eight-year-old Capt. Andrew M. Pedersen-Keel, of South Miami, Fla., was one of those killed. Pedersen-Keel was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg.
God bless Capt. Pedersen-Keel — and all our troops. Bring the noise.
