An airman shot his commander dead in an apparent "murder-suicide" at a US air base in Texas, the Associated Press has reported, citing an unnamed official.
The FBI is leading the investigation at San Antonio's Lackland Air Force Base, which was placed under lockdown while deputies explored the site's buildings in response to reports of the shooting.
Brig. Gen. Robert LaBrutta said two handguns were found near the bodies of the men and confirmed the shooting was not an act of terrorism.
Bexar County Sheriff's Office tweeted updates of the shooting while it remained active:
