LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Army officials say the civilian employee who was fatally shot in a Fort Knox parking lot had worked at the Kentucky military post for nearly a decade.
An Army statement on Friday identified the victim as 51-year-old Lloyd R. Gibert. He had worked at the Army Human Resources Command at Fort Knox since 2004.
Gibert was shot in the parking lot of the building on Wednesday afternoon. Investigators found eight shell casings at the scene.
Police arrested a soldier, Marquinta E. Jacobs, on Thursday in his mother's Tennessee hometown. The FBI says Jacobs fired a .45-caliber handgun at Gibert, "striking him several times"
Jacobs made his initial appearance in federal court Friday. U.S. Magistrate Judge H. Brent Brennenstuhl ordered him bound over to a military tribunal for all further proceedings. He will face premeditated murder and aggravated assault charges in military court.
