Frankfurt airport shooting involving US military

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - Police say a gunman fired shots at U.S. soldiers on a bus outside Frankfurt airport, killing two people and wounding two before being taken into custody.

Frankfurt police spokesman Manfred Fuellhardt says the attack Wednesday afternoon came as the bus sat outside Terminal 2 at the airport.

He said the two killed were the bus driver and a passenger, and that one person suffered serious wounds and one light injuries. He could not confirm whether any of the casualties were U.S. military personnel.

The U.S. Army Europe said it had no immediate information on the incident but was checking it.

The U.S. military has several major bases in the Frankfurt region, often used as a logistical hub for operations in Afghanistan or Iraq.
