A 15-year-old Harriman boy is accused of shooting and killing a member of the U.S. Army stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The shooting happened shortly after 7:30 pm Sunday at a home on Byrd Avenue in Harriman, leaving 23-year-old MarStratton Gordon dead.
According to a preliminary investigation by the Harriman Police Department, Gordon was between deployments and on leave visiting his girlfriend at the home on Byrd Avenue when there was a domestic altercation that led to a 15-year-old (reportedly his girlfriend’s brother) shooting and killing him with a single shot from a handgun. Investigators said an autopsy is being conducted at University of Tennessee Regional Forensics Center to determine an exact cause of death.
Harriman Police Department is conducting the investigation with the help of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and 9th District Attorney General’s Office.
Gordon attended Heritage High School and studied at Roane State Community College.
