MANHATTAN, Kan. — A Fort Riley soldier has been charged with first-degree murder in the New Year's Day shooting of a Kansas National Guard member at a motorcycle group's Manhattan clubhouse.
Riley County police and the county prosecutor said Spc. Daniel Patrick Parker, 25, made an initial court appearance Friday and remains held on $1 million bond pending his next appearance. The prosecutor's office did not know the name of Parker's attorney.
Parker is accused of firing from a passing car at the "Assasin Street Rydaz" clubhouse about 4 a.m. New Year's Day, killing Spc. Frederick Charles Beverly, 21, of Manhattan.
Police said Parker had a disagreement with another member of the club.
Riley officials said Parker is an active-duty soldier who has completed two deployments to Iraq.
