A soldier assigned to Fort Hood, Texas, has died from an apparent gunshot wound, officials said Tuesday.

Pvt. Wanya Bruns, 20, died Saturday in Killeen, Texas.

Bruns, whose home of record is listed as Bellwood, Illinois, joined the Army in February as a cavalry scout. He had been assigned to 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division since July.

The Killeen Police Department is investigating the circumstances of Bruns' death, but preliminary findings indicate the gunshot wound was self-inflicted, police officials said.
