Fort Knox Solider Apprehended in Connection with Wednesday Shooting Death
A Fort Knox soldier is being charged with murder in connection with Wednesday’s shooting death of a civilian employee at the Hardin County post. A news release from the Fort Knox public affairs office says Marquinta Jacobs is assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division.
Jacobs was apprehended in northern Tennessee by Portland Police and agents with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.
Fort Knox officials say the shooting appears to be a domestic issue, as opposed to a random act of violence. The shooting took place early Wednesday evening in a parking lot outside the U.S. Army Resources Command headquarters at Fort Knox.
