A Fort Campbell soldier is accused of fatally shooting another soldier and injuring a Clarksville Police Officer Thursday.
According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, 26-year old Benjamin Schweitzer barricaded himself in a bedroom after he reportedly shot another Fort Campbell soldier, now identified as Frederick Nicholas Moses multiple times.
Moses reportedly died from his injuries shortly after the shooting that took place Thursday morning near Quick Silver Court.
Following the shooting, Clarksville Police Officer James Eure was shot by Schweitzer after responding to a report of shots being fired in the area.
The condition of Officer Eure has not been released at this time, but it’s believed Officer Eure sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Schweitzer was booked into the Montgomery County Jail this morning and is charged with one count of homicide and is being held without bond.
The Fort Campbell soldier is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on March 26th at 1:30 p.m. in Montgomery County.
