Fort Hood officials have a soldier behind bars after another soldier was shot and killed at a party on the Central Texas Army post. They say 30-year-old Spc. Ryan Richard Schlack of Oshkosh, Wis., died Saturday. The Killeen Daily Herald reports he was hit by a bullet another soldier fired into a crowd on the lawn.

Fort Hood spokesman Bruce Zielsdorf says the soldier suspected of firing the gun is in custody, but it's unclear Monday if he's been charged.

Schlack entered the military in 2004 as a computer detection systems repairer and arrived at Fort Hood in 2005. He was assigned to the 27th Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division.
