WASHINGTON: Two people were killed Friday in a shooting on an air force base in Texas, authorities said, in what US media said appeared to be a murder-suicide. Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Rosanne Hughes confirmed to Agence France-Presse that two people at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio were killed, without offering details about the circumstances of the incident. The Air Force Times, citing initial internal Pentagon communications, said an airman shot the commanding officer of a training squadron, before apparently turning the gun on himself.Other US media cited local law enforcement as saying it was a murder-suicide.
