SAN ANTONIO — Texas authorities say at least one person has been killed in a shooting at an Air Force base in Texas.

Bexar County sheriff's spokesman James Keith said Friday that deputies have responded to reports of an active shooter at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, which is the home of Air Force basic training.

Keith confirmed that one person has died in the shooting and said that "we could have more." Minutes later, the sheriff's office confirmed a second fatality, saying it appeared to be a murder-suicide.

In 2009, Fort Hood, which is about 160 miles from Lackland Air Force Base, was the site of the deadliest shooting at a U.S. military base, when 13 people were killed and 31 were injured.
