FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Fort Hood police have shot and killed a soldier who fired a gun while sitting in his car on the Central Texas Army post.
Fort Hood officials say officers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle near a lake about a mile from the main gate early Friday. Then, the officers returned fire after the soldier shot his weapon as they approached the car.
Officials say the officers tried life-saving measures before emergency medical personnel arrived, but the soldier died.
Investigators later determined that the 30-year-old man was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood.
The soldier's name wasn't immediately released. The investigation is ongoing.
