BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Brunswick police are investigating the
shooting death of a Fort Benning soldier.

The body of 23-year-old Army Spc. Antonio L. Weems of Ventura, Calif., was found Saturday night in a car parked on a street corner. Police say Weems was killed by a gunshot to the head.

A woman, 19-year-old Vonquicha Moore, was hospitalized with a
gunshot wound to the neck. Police had no immediate information about her condition Monday or her relationship with Weems.

Fort Benning spokeswoman Elsie Jackson confirmed Weems was a
soldier with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the Army's 3rd Infantry
Division.

Police did not say why Weems was in Brunswick, located 250 miles east of Fort Benning.
