CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Authorities in Clarksville have asked the public’s help in catching those responsible for killing a soldier stationed at Fort Campbell over the weekend. 

Officials with Clarksville police said Liperial “Savon” Easterling, a 21-year-old soldier stationed at Fort Campbell, was killed early Sunday morning.

Easterling had just returned to his Teakwood Drive residence around 1 a.m. when he was fatally shot.

According to police, there may have been two men who approached the victim at his front door. So far, the preliminary investigation has not found any links to drug or gang activity.

A motive for the killing remains unknown.

Police aren't sure if Savon's killing was random or intentional. They have no witnesses or leads.

"Our detectives have a strong feeling that someone out there knows what happened and we're just urging those individuals to come forwards," said Natalie Hall with the Clarksville Police Department.

Officials with Clarksville Police, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Military are working together to solve the case.

Anyone with information was urged to contact Clarksville Police Detective Eric Ewing at (931) 648-0656 Ext 5447 or the CrimeStoppers TIPS Hotline at 931-645-TIPS (8477).
