Fort Bragg soldier who shot up house while wearing full body armor is in critical condition


The Fort Bragg Soldier who shot up a local residence and fled the crime scene is currently in “unstable” condition at the hospital, according to North Carolina law enforcement officials.

Specialist Eric Jerrod Davis is currently “in a critical state and highly unstable” as he remains under police watch in a Scotland County-area hospital.

Davis, a Soldier assigned to Fort Bragg, NC, reportedly donned military gear and assaulted a Laurel Hill residence on June 12, around one hour’s drive from the installation.



According to a statement by the Scotland County Sheriff’s Office, the attack took place at around 3 AM.

“Davis was reportedly armed with a shotgun and wearing his military-issued ballistic gear, which included his ballistic vest,” the statement read. “Davis allegedly opened fire on the victim with the intent to allegedly kill the victim. Several other innocent bystanders were present at the time, and one innocent bystander returned fire, shooting Davis and allegedly subduing the threat.”

Wounded, Davis fled the scene in his vehicle, only to become a casualty in a single-vehicle collision.

Davis is a member of the 261st Multifunctional Medical Battalion, 44th Medical Brigade, XVIII Airborne Corps at Fort Bragg, NC.



The SCSO are working with Fort Bragg officials, to include CID, to determine why the attack was carried out.

Davis has been charged with Felony Attempted First Degree Murder, and Felony Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling.
