Soldier Stabbed To Death Outside Barracks

Updated:
FORT LEWIS, Wash. (AP) _ A soldier was stabbed to death outside a barracks on the Fort Lewis Army post early Friday, and a suspect was in custody, military officials said.

The 22-year-old soldier died at Madigan Army Medical Center about an hour after the attack, according to a news release from the post.

Military police and Army Criminal Investigation Command officers said an investigation was under way. They described the stabbing as ``an isolated incident'' that should not reflect on overall safety and security at Fort Lewis, located between Tacoma and Olympia.

The slain soldier was not immediately identified.
