FORT HOOD — The Article 32 hearing for the soldier charged with shooting a man in the Liberty Village housing area began today.
Spc. Curtis Davis, 4th Sustainment Brigade, is charged with attempted murder, according to information provided during the hearing. An Article 32 hearing is a preliminary hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence to move forward with a court-martial.
During the hearing it was announced that Davis' defense council pulled out at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. The defense asked for a delay, but it wasn't granted.
The charge stems from a June 3 shooting in which one man was injured. The incident took place at a basketball court in Liberty Village at 8:30 p.m. following a brief argument.
Liberty Village is not located on the main post and has no gate guards, but is patrolled by Fort Hood military police.
