A military service member was found dead on an Air Force joint base in Texas Wednesday morning, officials said.

According to a media advisory, officials at the JBSA-Fort Sam Houston have launched an investigation into the death of the soldier who was found in their barracks.

Officials at the base have not released the cause of death. The identity of the service member is also being withheld at this time.

A DailyMail.com request for more information to JBSA-Fort Sam Houston was not immediately returned on Wednesday afternoon.

JBSA officials said they did not ‘assess there is a danger to JBSA residents or the community’.

Officials did not say if they believed foul play was involved, only that ‘the incident is under investigation’.

The soldier is the second in the past five months to be found deceased on the JBSA-Fort Sam Houston base.

In July, Sgt Kelvonta K. Ellis, 22, from Westlake, Louisiana, was found dead in his room at the base. Ellis was served five years in the Louisiana Army National Guard as a Military Police Noncommissioned Officer.

His death is still under investigation by officials at the base.

Fort Sam Houston is one of three large military bases in San Antonio that make up the joint base, which is managed by the Air Force. The joint base supports about 47,000 service members.
