SAN ANTONIO— Two people are dead after a shooting Friday morning at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, U.S. Air Force officials said.

No arrests have been reported, but the situation is over and a lockdown at the base has been lifted, Brig. Gen. Bob Labrutta told reporters.

A Pentagon official told CNN on condition of anonymity that an airman shot his squadron commander.

Labrutta, after a reporter asked him about this account, said he would not confirm it. He declined to identify the dead and gave no details about what led to the shooting or any relationship between the two.

After a shooting was reported at 8:40 a.m. (9:40 a.m. ET), two “male victims” and two Glock guns were found in an office at Forbes Hall, Labrutta said.
