FORT HOOD — Fort Hood officials have released the name of a soldier who was found dead Monday at his off-post residence in Copperas Cove.

Staff Sgt. Brian Michael Reed, 40, whose home of record is listed as Corpus Christi, entered active-duty service in August 2005 as an infantryman, and later changed jobs to be an explosive ordnance disposal specialist. He was assigned to the 79th Ordnance Battalion at Fort Hood since October 2015.

Copperas Cove police on Wednesday said there are no immediate signs of foul play in Reed’s death. He was found with a gunshot wound, said Cove police Sgt. Martin Ruiz. An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death.

Reed deployed to Iraq from August 2006 to September 2007 and to Afghanistan from April 2011 to April 2012.
