KILLEEN, Texas (AP) — Central Texas police are still investigating a shooting that left a western Iowa soldier serving at Fort Hood dead, and another injured. Police say 22-year old Specialist Jamie Lee Schnider, of Carter Lake, died Thursday night during a fight outside a Killeen home near the Central Texas Army post. A 21-year-old Fort Hood soldier whose name wasn’t released also was shot. It’s unclear if he remains hospitalized. Killeen police spokeswoman Carroll Smith says a man was taken into custody, questioned and released.

Fort Hood officials say Schnider entered active-duty service in 2008. He was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood since late 2008. Schnider served in Iraq in 2009 and again in 2011.
