Active-duty Soldiers from Fort Hood and Fort Bragg have died in unrelated shooting incidences, on opposite sides of the country, this week. The Soldiers have been identified as Sgt. Kameron Alexander Womack, 24, of St. Louis and Justin Moore, 21, of Fayetteville, N.C. Both deaths are under investigation.
Fayetteville, N.C., police said Thursday that a man wearing an Army uniform who was found shot and killed Wednesday was a Soldier at Fort Bragg.
The victim has been identified as Justin Moore (no rank listed) who lived on Tamarack Drive in Fayetteville. His body was found off-post Wednesday morning in the parking lot of the Lake in the Pines apartment complex.
Ft. Bragg officials did not immediately have further information on Moore to include previous deployments, commendations, or marital status.
The Lake in the Pines complex is well-known to Fayetteville police. Some residents have said they heard gunshots at the complex at night.
Moore’s death remains under investigation. Anyone with information concerning the shooting is asked to call Detective M. Walker at 910-237-9391 or CrimeStoppers at 910-483-8477.
In Texas, yesterday, authorities released the name of a Soldier who died from an apparent gunshot wound at his home in Killeen. The incident took place sometime on Sunday. It is unknown if anyone else was at the home when the incident occurred.
The body was identified as Sgt. Kameron Alexander Womack who entered active-duty service in August 2008, as a combat engineer. He was currently assigned to 8th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division.
Sgt. Womack had been deployed twice to Afghanistan. His first deployment was January 2010 to January 2011; his second was May 2012 to February 2013. Army authorities did not say if Sgt. Womack was preparing for a third deployment.
Fort Hood Public Affairs said Sgt. Womack had two Army Commendation Medals, the Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, two Afghanistan Campaign Medals with campaign star, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon, Army Service Ribbon, two Overseas Service Ribbons, NATO Medal and Combat Action Badge.
Although Sgt. Womack’s death is under investigation, authorities are downplaying foul-play.
