"These Things Happen"

In that recent massacre in Afghanistan, one thing I heard people say is "these things happen in war", but I've actually never heard of a soldier individually just attacking numerous civilians when there's no other violence at the moment.

The fact that the soldier turned himself in implies that he thought there was something very unusual about what he did.

Have I missed something?
