U.S. Navy reports, two U.S. Navy sailors were killed and a third was critically wounded early Monday in a shooting incident on a U.S. military base in Bahrain.

The shootings took place in the barracks on the U.S. Naval Support Activity Bahrain base around 5 a.m. (0200GMT), the Navy said in a statement.

The two sailors were pronounced dead at the scene, and the third was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, the statement said.
