2 Dead in Shooting at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas: Sheriff

Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland is the home of Air Force basic training

Two people are dead in a shooting at the Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, authorities said.

Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesman James Keith told MSNBC the Friday morning attack appears to be a murder-suicide.

The bodies of two males were found inside an office at the Forbes Hall building, Brig. Gen. Robert D. LaBrutta said at a press conference Friday. Officials also found two Glock firearms at the scene, he added.  

Officials declined to identify the victims, saying the families must be notified first.

A senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press an airman shot his commander. NBC News has not independently confirmed this information.
