A staff sergeant has been killed in combat in Iraq, Defense Department officials said Monday.

Staff Sgt. Danny P. Dupre, 28, of Lockport, La., was killed July 15 in Anbar province, military officials said. He was assigned to Camp Lejeune, N.C.-based 1st Battalion, 9th Marines.

Dupre was shot while gathering intelligence for his squad in Ramadi, the Associated Press reported Sunday. He was hit behind the ear by a sniper’s bullet while on a classified mission, said the Daily Comet newspaper of Lafourche Parish, attributing the information to an anonymous Marine official.

Dupre served four overseas deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, and was scheduled to be buried on Monday.

His wife, Crystal, lives in Jacksonville, Florida, with their 3-year-old son, Daniel Dupre.
