WIDEFIELD, Colo. (AP) -

Authorities say a soldier from Tennessee has been shot and killed at his home in Colorado, and a juvenile member of his family is a suspect.
 
Army Sgt. James Fleming died Saturday in Widefield, south of Colorado Springs and near Fort Carson, where he was stationed.
 
El Paso County sheriff's Lt. Jeff Kramer told the Colorado Springs Gazette that the juvenile, who's name wasn't released, is not in custody. Kramer says there's no risk to the public.
 
The 36-year-old Fleming was a mechanic from Cordova, Tenn. The 11-year veteran had deployed to Iraq three times and Kuwait once.
 
He's the second Fort Carson soldier fatally shot at home in two months. Staff Sgt. David Dunlap and his wife, Whitney Butler, were killed when they surprised a burglar on Jan. 14.
