FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Military officials at Fort Bragg have confirmed that a soldier shot and killed his superior officer before shooting and wounding himself. A third soldier was also wounded.

Fort Bragg officials have not released the identities of the soldiers involved or motives for the Thursday shooting at the North Carolina military installation. The incident remains under investigation.

Fort Bragg Public Affairs Officer Col. Kevin Arata said the soldiers are from the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade.

The shooter is in custody. Officials say they are still in the process of notifying next of kin.

Fort Bragg is home to the 82nd Airborne Division, the 18th Airborne Corps and Special Operations Forces.
