MANAMA, Bahrain (CBS AP) -- Two U.S. Navy sailors were killed and a third was critically wounded early Monday in a shooting incident on a U.S. military base in Bahrain, the U.S. Navy said.
The Navy said the incident is not terror-related and is under investigation.
The Navy says the shootings took place in the barracks on the U.S. Naval Support Activity Bahrain base around 5 a.m.
The two sailors were pronounced dead at the scene, and the third was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, the statement said.
Officials closed the base temporarily and reopened it about an hour after the incident.
