Civilian Employee Dead in Fort Knox Murder

Murder Scene at Fort Knox
An employee at Fort Knox was killed Wednesday at about 5:30 p.m., which resulted in the base
being locked down for an hour. Fort Knox Police received a 911 call close to 5:40, and were reportedly at the scene in minutes.

Investigators from the Army Criminal Investigation Command are on the scene, and CID spokesman Chris Grey said this in the statement: "Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are investigating a personal incident and not a random act of violence."

FBI agents from Louisville were also sent to the scene of the crime.

The victim was shot in a parking lock outside of the Human Resources Command headquarters, and was a worker in human resources. He was transported by ambulance to Ireland Army Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to an Army statement.

A person of interest in the case is a black male about 5-feet, 9-inches tall. He is riding what is thought to be a black Yamaha motorcycle.

The name of the victim won't be released for 24 hours after notification of his family.


The victim of the murder is Lloyd R. Gibert, a 51-year-old resident of Elizabethtown, according to the Army.
