Recommended Posts

A suspect is in custody and an investigation is underway after a shooting that killed a soldier at Fort Stewart, a U.S. Army post in Georgia, on Monday morning.

Fort Stewart did not immediately name the suspected shooter or the soldier who died. The Second Brigade complex was briefly locked down during the incident, officials there said. 

Contacted by Fox News Digital, Kevin Larson, a spokesman for Fort Stewart Public Affairs, said, "We will release additional information once we can."


Before 11 a.m. Monday, Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield’s verified account tweeted out similar information.

"An incident is occurring on Fort Stewart. EMS are on location at a building in the 2nd ABCT complex responding to what has been described as a shooting," the tweet said. "Law enforcement has a suspect in custody."

A news release from Fort Stewart elaborated: "The soldier’s identity will be released following completion of the next-of-kin notification process."

It went on to say, "The suspect in the shooting was apprehended by Fort Stewart law enforcement at the scene and transferred to U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division’s custody. The investigation is ongoing and no additional information is being released at this time."

Fox News' Haley Chi-Sing and Liz Friden contributed to this report.
