Police said in a statement that officers were dispatched to a reported shooting along the 1400 block of Ferndell Drive.

Upon arrival, officers located an adult female who had been shot outside of a residence.

Authorities said a responding officer performed life-saving measures until she could be transported to a local hospital for her injuries.

The victim succumbed to her injuries, and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police Sgt Jeremy Glass said that no further details about the shooting were immediately available.

Vinson, who faces charges of first-degree murder and shooting a firearm into occupied property, was being held at the Cumberland County Jail without bond, police said.

Horton (pictured) was a motorpool clerk assigned to the 525th Military Intelligence Brigade. She joined the Army in 2017t wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

Both women were active-duty soldiers stationed on Fort Bragg, Col Joseph Buccino, a spokesman for the 18th Airborne Corps, told The Fayetteville Observer.

Buccino said Horton was a motorpool clerk assigned to the 525th Military Intelligence Brigade. Horton joined the Army in 2017.

Vinson, of Norfolk, Virginia, was a parachute rigger assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group. Vinson joined the Army in 2014.

'This is a tragic, senseless loss and a terrible moment, particularly for those here who knew Kelia,' Buccino told the newspaper.

'The command at the 525 Military Intelligence Brigade is organizing grief counseling for Kelia’s fellow soldiers and engaging with the family,' he added.
