A September preliminary hearing is planned for a Fort Riley soldier accused of murdering another soldier in a February shooting in Aggieville.

19-year-old Tremelle Montgomery appeared in Riley County District Court Tuesday, via Zoom. Montgomery is charged with one count of first-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Joshua Wardi. Online court documents list three counts of attempted first-degree murder against three other victims, including Donovan Bastien, Jared Musgrave and Tyrece White on Feb. 5.

The shooting happened after a verbal altercation between Montgomery and Wardi, according to investigators. Montgomery reportedly fled the scene and was shot at by an RCPD officer, who fired two shots at his leg, injuring him.

Magistrate Judge William Malcolm has scheduled an all-day preliminary examination Sept. 30.
