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."

Special Agents from the Army Criminal Investigation Command are on the scene and have begun an investigation.
