The family of a Little Rock Central graduate says they`ve been notified that their son has been killed during fighting in Iraq. The family of Special Forces Master Sergeant Kevin Morehead said they were told that he died in a firefight in the town of Ramadi. Another soldier was killed and seven were wounded Morehead`s family lives at Benton now, but the 33-year-old grew up in Little Rock. He was one of the first soldiers deployed to Afghanistan to round up terror suspects following the September Eleventh attacks. He returned to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, before heading out to see more action in Iraq. Morehead`s family says they consider him a hero and patriot who fought on the front lines in the war against terror. The soldier was stationed at Fort Campbell in Kentucky and was scheduled to return from Iraq in two weeks. He would have turned thirty four on Sunday.
