A Fort Campbell soldier charged with two counts of attempted murder served a combat tour in Afghanistan, said Army spokesman Rick Rzepka.
Spc. Larry W. Reed Jr., 20, of Quincy, Fla., was deployed to Afghanistan for a part of 2010 and 2011, Rzepka said. Reed was an infantryman assigned to Mortar Platoon, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, Task Force No Slack during the deployment, according to a 2010 article from an Army public affairs detachment.
Reed is accused of shooting at a vehicle while on post Saturday evening. He was arrested Sunday morning, with the help of Fort Campbell police and the Army Criminal Investigations Division.
Joining the Army in September of 2009, Reed arrived at Fort Campbell in December of that year, Rzepka said.
Rzepka was not sure whether additonal charges will be filed and said the investigation into the alleged shooting Saturday night is still underway.
Reed was booked Sunday night into the Christian County Jail, where he remained as of Monday evening. Rzepka did not know if any court hearings had been scheduled.
