An American sailor fatally shot two female sailors before shooting himself Monday inside a U.S. military barracks in Bahrain, the Navy said.
The alleged shooter, a male, survived the self-inflicted gunshot and was in critical condition at a military hospital in Bahrain, the Navy said. The man was under heavy security.
The motive for the shootings is unclear, but the Navy said the incident was not terror-related and it involved only U.S. military personnel.
The shootings occurred about 5 a.m., the Navy said in a news release. The base was closed for about an hour after the shootings.
