U.S. Soldier Kills Commanding Officer Before Turning Gun on Himself

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

KILLEEN, Texas — A Fort Hood soldier shot to death his lieutenant during a confrontation at his off-base apartment Monday, then killed himself, police said.

The lieutenant and a staff sergeant went to the Army specialist's apartment, and a confrontation ensued. Killeen police officers responded to a call of a man with a gun, and they saw the specialist hit and then shoot the lieutenant as they arrived at the scene, Killeen police spokesman Carroll Smith said.

The officers returned fire, but the specialist shot himself in the head, Smith said. Police are still investigating what started the confrontation, she said.
