An Indiana National Guard soldier died Saturday at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, located about 75 miles southeast of Indianapolis.

Cpl. Larry Litton Jr., of Martinsville, was 30 years old and an assistant squad leader with the 384th Military Police Company when he was found unresponsive at the facility.

He later was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

The National Guard said the cause of Litton's death is under investigation and no further details are available at this time.

Cpt. Cameron Molnar, commander of the 384th Military Police Company, said Litton was a "respected and admired soldier."

"His love for his family, his fellow service members, and our country makes this loss a tough and sad time. My deepest sympathy for his family and friends in this very difficult time," Molnar said.

The Muscatatuck Urban Training Center is the Army's premier location for preparing soldiers to fight in urban environments with more than 120 structures spread across some 1,000 acres in Jennings County, Indiana.
