Police were trying to reconstruct where a Fort Carson soldier was before he was found dead with a bullet wound on a sidewalk in a residential area.
A newspaper delivery person found the man?s body just after 5 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Douglas Rule, a spokesman for Fort Carson, confirmed that the victim was a soldier at the post. Police identified him as Kevin Shields, 24, of Colorado Springs.
Police said Shields was shot at least once in the head. An autopsy showed he was shot several times, and his death was ruled a homicide.
There were no reports of shots fired or a disturbance in the area before the body was found, said police Lt. Mark Smith.
