Soldier charged in theft sales also facing attempted killing

A Fort Campbell soldier accused along with five others of stealing Army equipment overseas was charged with attempted homicide earlier this year.
    
Police say 29-year-old Kyle Thomas Heade was charged in a shooting at a Bojangles restaurant in Clarksville, Tennessee in January.
    
The Tennessean reports (tnne.ws/2dSCqBu) Heade fired into a car while two men were robbing a woman. One of the men in the car, Timothy Grant, was hit five times but he survived.
    
Heade’s attorney has said Heade was protecting a robbery victim.
    
He was one of six soldiers and two civilians charged with conspiring to steal sensitive military equipment worth more than $1 million and selling it online. The federal indictment against them was unsealed this week.
    
According to court records, Heade has an arraignment scheduled for Monday in Montgomery County on the attempted homicide charge.
