FAIRBANKS — A Fort Wainwright soldier who died Sunday morning likely was killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, although the circumstances of the case are being investigated by the Army Criminal Investigations Detachment, an Army Alaska spokesman said.

The Army identified the soldier Tuesday as Marvin Kenneth Scott, 21, of Quincy, Fla., an air traffic control operator with the 1st Battalion, 52nd Aviation Regiment. Scott was stationed at Fort Wainwright since 2009.

Scott was found with a head injury Sunday morning in his Fort Wainwright barracks and was rushed to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, where he was declared dead.

His next of kin have been notified.
