An American soldier assigned to U.S. Army Central died in a non-combat related incident around 8:30 am on Thursday at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.
Kuwait’s Interior Ministry told numerous regional media outlets that the soldier committed suicide and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The ministry said the U.S. soldier was rushed to a public hospital in southern Kuwait but upon arrival, was pronounced dead.
Both the ministry and the Army Central news release say that it is under investigation. The soldiers name is being held until the family is notified.
