Soldier charged with attempted murder

FORT CAMPBELL, KY (AP) - An Army sergeant who was shot during a fight at Fort Campbell has been charged with attempted murder and assault for stabbing a military police officer.

The military says the fight broke out Tuesday when Staff Sgt. Ian J. Kriebel flagged down a military police officer who was on patrol. A statement from Fort Campbell Thursday says Kriebel and the officer began to fight and Kriebel stabbed the officer "repeatedly with a knife" in the neck and upper torso.

The military police officer shot Kriebel once during the altercation. The officer, who was not identified, remains hospitalized. Kriebel, of Oaks, Pa., is in military custody.

Kriebel was also charged with three counts of assault and faces a court martial. Kriebel joined the Army in 2006 and is a fire support specialist at Fort Campbell.
