Tennessee Soldier Shot, Killed In Colorado Home

WIDEFIELD, Colo. (AP) – Authorities say a soldier from Tennessee has been shot and killed at his home in Colorado, and a juvenile member of his family is a suspect.

Army Sgt. James Fleming died Saturday in Widefield, a town near Fort Carson, where he was stationed.

The juvenile’s name hasn’t been released. El Paso County sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Kramer declined Wednesday to describe the juvenile’s relationship to Fleming. Kramer says the juvenile isn’t in custody but the public isn’t at risk.

The 36-year-old Fleming was a mechanic from Cordova, Tenn. The 11-year veteran had deployed to Iraq three times and Kuwait once.

He’s the second Fort Carson soldier fatally shot at home in two months. Staff Sgt. David Dunlap and his wife, Whitney Butler, were killed when they surprised a burglar Jan. 14.
