An investigation is underway after a deadly shooting on a North Carolina Army Base, reportedly k!lling a senior officer.

According to officials at Fort Bragg, in Fayetteville, a shooting took place on base on Thursday afternoon around 3:30 p.m.

Kevin Arata, XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg Public Affairs Officer. "Our prayers are with those who have been affected by this terrible incident."
