A 22-year-old Fort Hood soldier was identified Monday as the man shot to death in a motel room three days earlier.
While the autopsy result indicates the cause of death for Pvt. Bartosz P. Kaluza is an intraoral shotgun wound to the head, Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke said the manner of death is still to be determined.
The shooting occurred around 3 p.m. Friday in a room at the Hallmark Inn at 4500 E. Central Expressway in Killeen
Kaluza, a Chicago, Ill., native, was pronounced dead 35 minutes later by Cooke, who ordered the autopsy to be performed at the Southwestern Institute of Forensics Science in Dallas.
Kaluza, a member of Headquarters Troop, 2nd Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, was an indirect-fire infantryman. He entered the Army on April 11, 2005.
The investigation continues.
