A 25-year old soldier from Concord has been killed in Afghanistan.

The Defense Department says sergeant Gabriel Guzman died Saturday when his Humvee hit a roadside bomb.

Guzman was a paratrooper assigned to Fort Bragg. He had previously earned the bronze star and the purple heart in his five years of military service.

He leaves behind a seven-year old daughter who lives in Mount Shasta.
