KILLEEN, Texas (AP) - A soldier has died after being shot during a Central Texas parking lot attack that left two other men critically hurt.

Fort Hood officials on Monday announced the death of 25-year-old Spec. Austin James Sampson of Bliss, N.Y.

Killeen police are trying to determine a motive for the Jan. 2 shootings in a convenience store parking lot. Police said the Iraq War veteran and two other men were in an SUV when a gunman approached and opened fire.

The alleged gunman was later identified as 17-year-old Terry Grant Scott. He faces charges for murder.

Sampson died Friday at a hospital in Temple. Further details on the two survivors weren't immediately available.

Sampson had been assigned to Fort Hood's Headquarters Troop, 3rd Squadron, 3rd Cavalry Regiment, since February 2010.
