SAN ANTONIO (April 8, 2016) — A sheriff’s spokesman says two people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide at a U.S. Air Force base in San Antonio.

Bexar County sheriff’s spokesman James Keith said two bodies were found Friday morning inside a room of a building at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.

Keith says it’s believed the shooter is among the two dead, but that sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement officers are continuing to search the building and nearby facilities.

Investigators said it appeared an airman killed his commander.

Lackland is a key training installation for the Air Force.
