FORT JACKSON, S.C. (AP) - Army officials say a non-commissioned officer has died at Fort Jackson at the end of a physical fitness test.

Fort Jackson spokesman Patrick Jones said in a news release that the solider finished the final event in the test - a two-mile run - just before collapsing Thursday. He died at the hospital a short time later.

Jones says the soldier was from Delta Company, 120th Adjutant General Battalion and was attending a senior leadership course. His name has not been released.

The Army is investigating the death.
