Four people have been killed, including the gunman, in a shooting at Fort Hood in Texas today, according to senior U.S. officials and the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

The committee chairman, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, told CNN he had been briefed on the deadly incident and said there were also 14 injuries. Authorities were concerned another shooter might be at large, but no link to terrorism has been discovered, the lawmaker said.

Before McCaul’s appearance on CNN, Fort Hood’s media office cited an initial report that the shooter was dead but said the report was not confirmed.

Sgt. Maj. Nicholas Connor, a spokesman for Fort Hood, told ABC News that authorities would lift a “shelter in place” order as soon as they believed it was safe to do so.
