Charges were filed against Spc. Curtis Davis of the 4th Sustainment Brigade in connection with a June shooting in an on-post housing community, Fort Hood officials confirmed Wednesday.

The charges stem from a June 3 incident at a basketball court in Liberty Village at 8:30 p.m. A Fort Hood official declined to say what the charges were.

Officials said a male civilian with no Defense Department affiliation was allegedly assaulted and then shot 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.

Davis will have an Article 32 hearing Wednesday.

“The charges preferred against Davis are merely an accusation, and he is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law,” a release stated.
