LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The man wanted in connection with a deadly shooting Wednesday night at Fort Knox has been arrested in Tennessee.

According to a press release with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, the man wanted is a soldier and was found in Portland, TN, north of Nashville. The Army has not released the name of the soldier, but said he is a member of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division at Fort Knox.

Portland, TN police have identified the man taken into custody as Marquinta Jacobs, 37. The Portland Leader, a newspaper serving the area, said Jacobs is being held at police headquarters to await the arrival of federal agents.

According to a criminal complaint filed by the FBI in U. S. District Court, Jacobs fired a .45-caliber handgun at the victim "striking him several times." The complaint also states that investigators found eight shell casings at the scene.

The shooting happened around 5:40 p.m. in a parking lot outside the headquarters of the Human Resources Command. The victim, a civilian employee of the Army, was pronounced dead a short time later. His name has not been released.

Chris Grey, an Army CID spokesperson in Quantico, VA, said, "the shooting appears to be a domestic issue and not a random act of violence."

Jacobs is being held in Tennessee, but is expected to appear before a federal magistrate in Bowling Green, KY as early as Friday.
