JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, ALASKA — Army officials say an Alaska-based paratrooper from Texas has died in a traffic incident northeast of Anchorage.

U.S. Army Alaska officials say in a release that 23-year-old Spc. Shawn N. Bounds of Tyler, Texas, died early Saturday morning when his vehicle rolled in the public use area of the Knik River.

He was transported by emergency responders to a hospital in nearby Palmer, where he was pronounced dead just after 4 a.m.

The Army says the fire support specialist was assigned to the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division at the Anchorage base on October 2011.

He deployed to Afghanistan from December 2011 to September 2012.

He joined the Army in May 2011.

Alaska State Troopers are investigating the fatal incident.
