A soldier has been detained for questioning in Wednesday’s shooting death of a civilian employee at Fort Knox, Kentucky, according to a news release from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.
The soldier, who was assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, was captured in Tennessee.
The civilian was killed in a parking lot outside Fort Knox in a shooting that authorities said stemmed from a personal dispute.
The incident took place Wednesday afternoon outside Fort Knox’s Human Resources Command headquarters in Kentucky. It prompted officials to lock down the army post for an hour.
Authorities are withholding the name of the deceased pending family notification.
