Officials said The Barrington Place apartment complex is temporarily off-limits to Fort Bragg-based service members.

Fort Bragg official said The Barrington Place apartment complex, formerly known as Cambridge Arms apartments, is temporarily off-limits to new leases and lease renewals by Fort Bragg-based service members until further notice.

The off-limits order bars service members from entering into new leases or renewing existing leases.

Service members already residing at the complex are not required to relocate unless their lease expires while the property is deemed off-limits.

The order is temporary until the Fort Bragg Armed Forces Disciplinary Board can further evaluate the situation and makes a final recommendation about the property's off-limits designation.

"This action was taken to keep our uniformed service members and their families away from the criminal activity and behaviors that we at Fort Bragg have been monitoring for some time," said Ben Abel, Fort Bragg spokesman.

Police are known to frequent the apartment complex. In January, a man and a woman were shot to death after police said someone inside an apartment answered the door to an unidentified suspect and an argument ensued.
