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

Fort Bragg officials have not released the identities of the officer or the shooter, or a motive for Thursday’s shooting at the North Carolina military installation. The shooter is in custody.

The incident remains under investigation.

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

A third soldier who was wounded during the shooting is out of the hospital. Officials say 22-year-old Spc. Michael E. Latham of Vacaville, Calif., has been released from Womack Army Medical Center. Latham suffered what’s called a minor, non-life-threatening wound.

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