Domestic dispute suspected in gunfire on Georgia Army post
FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) — A military base spokesman says gunshots fired on an Army post in Georgia likely resulted from a domestic argument.
Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson said nobody was injured Monday afternoon after several shots were fired in a parking lot outside a classroom building on the sprawling base roughly 40 miles (65 kilometers) southwest of Savannah.
Larson said a civilian woman was detained by military police. He said it “remains to be seen” if the woman would be charged.
He said military investigators suspect the gunfire was “related to a domestic dispute.” Asked if it might be a terrorist attack, Larson said: “It is not.” He declined to release further details, including the suspect’s identity.
Larson said the classroom building is used to prepare soldiers leaving the Army for civilian life.
