The man accused of shooting and paralyzing a Fort Campbell soldier at his homecoming party in California Friday night has been arrested.
Fox News reports 19-year old Ruben Ray Jurado is charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting 22-year old Christopher Sullivan, who was reportedly attempting to break up a fight between his brother and another man which began with an argument over football.
Sullivan was a Purple Heart recipient after sustaining a cracked collarbone and brain damage in an attack by a suicide bomber earlier this year in Afghanistan. He had been recovering from his wounds on Fort
Campbell before being allowed to go home to California on leave late last week.
The bullet allegedly fired by Jurado struck Sullivan’s spine, leaving him paralyzed.
