TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa man says the military has told him his 19-year-old son has been killed in Afghanistan.

Dudley Pearson says the Army told him March 22 that his son, Spc. Adam J. Hardt, was shot to death.

The military confirmed the death March 23, saying that Hardt died “as a result of non-combat-related injuries.”

A spokeswoman could not specify the manner of the death, and added that the matter was under investigation.

Hardt’s home of record is Avondale, Ariz., according to the military. Attempts to reach nearby family members were not successful.

He joined the Army in 2007 and trained at Fort Benning, Ga., and Fort Gordon, Ga., before being assigned to Fort Drum, N.Y., in April 2008.
