A Fort Benning solider was fatally shot Saturday night in Brunswick, Ga., police said.
Spc. Antonio L. Weems, 23, of Canyon Country, Calif., was found in a car at the corner of F Street and Johnson with a gunshot wound to head around 7:50 p.m. Officers found both Weems and a 19-year-old Salem, Ala. woman, who was shot in the neck, in the area when they responded about a report of shots being fired, a report states.
Both were taken to the Southeast Georgia Regional Medical Center, where Weems was pronounced dead. The woman was sent to Savannah for treatment.
Weems joined the Army in March 2006 and came to Fort Benning from basic training in August 2006, said Elsie Jackson, public affairs officer. He served as a fire support specialist.
