U.S. soldier tried to kill his mates

A soldier accused of opening fire on fellow soldiers six weeks ago has been charged with attempted murder, Fort Campbell officials said Wednesday. No one was wounded.

Pvt. Nicholas D. Mikel, 21, also was charged with attempted rape, stemming from an incident the day before the Oct. 13 shooting, the Army post said in a statement.

Mikel was accused of firing five shots into the group of soldiers who were doing early-morning physical training. There were no injuries.

Fort Campbell officials said at the time that the suspect, arrested shortly after the shooting, had a handgun that was not issued by the military. The suspect's name was not released at the time.

Mikel faces 42 counts of premeditated attempted murder and four of attempted murder. He faces other charges, including larceny for the alleged theft of a government laptop computer and failure to obey an order by wrongfully possessing the weapon.

The charges were forwarded to the rear detachment commander for the 101st Airborne Division. The commander ordered a pretrial investigation, which was under way, the AP reports.
