Friends and family gathered to remember the life of an Army special agent who passed away while training at the U.S. Military academy in West Point this week.
Officials say Chief Warrant Officer Liquat Khan, 51, was discovered on Tower Road near the Gillis Field House. It happened during a physical fitness test while he was running Tuesday morning.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The army says the death is under investigation, but foul play isn't suspected.
Khan joined the army after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. He was a special agent for more than 15 years and served two combat tours.
Family and friends in Cypress Hills held a vigil in his honor. They remembered the husband and father as a loving and caring man.
