WIDEFIELD, Colo. A man who died at a Widefield home after an armed standoff with sheriff's deputies was a Fort Carson soldier assigned to the Warrior Transition Unit.

El Paso County sheriff's spokeswoman Lari Sevene says 27-year-old Spc. Larry Curtis Applegate died Friday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Deputies responded to the house on a report that a man was firing assault rifles inside.

Post spokeswoman Julie Lucas on Tuesday said Applegate was assigned to the unit created by the Pentagon in June 2007 to house soldiers injured in war and to help them focus on healing. Post commander Maj. Gen. Mark Graham planned a news conference Wednesday at 8 a.m. Additional details were not immediately available.
