The condition of a Fort Campbell soldier accused of murder remains unclear at this time.
Fort Campbell officials have not released any information regarding the male soldier, but confirmed to WHOP this afternoon that military police responded to an on-post residence regarding a homicide that was domestic in nature last night around 10 p.m.
Following the murder, the Fort Campbell soldier reportedly fled to Georgia early this morning in his white Cadillac and a high speed chase ensued with Bartow County Sheriff’s Deputies.
Bartow County Sheriff’s Sergeant Jonathan Rogers says the high speed chase first began in Hamilton County, Tennessee with the soldier driving 120 mph.
Sergeant Rogers says following the high speed chase, the soldier apparently shot himself and was then life-lighted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia where his condition remains unclear.
This is a developing story and more information will be released as soon as it becomes available.
