Army employee shot, killed at Fort Knox in Ky.
FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) — An Army civilian employee was shot and killed in a parking lot at Kentucky's Fort Knox on Wednesday, and investigators were seeking to question a man in connection with the shooting, authorities said
Army officials said in a news release late Wednesday that the victim was an employee of the U.S. Army Human Resources Command, which handles personnel actions for soldiers. The shooting occurred in a lot outside the command. The victim was transported to the Ireland Army Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
"Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are investigating a personal incident and not a random act of violence," said Chris Grey, spokesman for the independent Army investigative agency...........
Police were seeking to speak with a person of interest in the case. The news release identified him as a 5-foot, 9-inch black man who is American and is believed to be using a black Yamaha motorcycle for transportation..........
Fort Knox spokesman Kyle Hodges said late Wednesday that the post remained on a heightened security alert, but said officials don't believe the person of interest was still on post............more at link.....

From January 2014:
U.S. Army Sgt. Marquinta Jacobs, who pleaded guilty for the shooting death of 51-year-old Lloyd R. Gilbert at Fort Knox, was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Friday, The Associated Press reported. Jacobs had pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges of premeditated murder and aggravated assault.
The judge in the court martial also gave Jacobs a dishonorable discharge and a demotion in rank in the U.S. military. The Army Corrections still will decide where Jacobs will serve his sentence.
