GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Police say the gunman is among the two people who died in a shooting at a Wal-Mart store in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Lt. Derik Zimmel says the shooter was the only person with a gun, and police do not believe there is any further safety risk to the general public.

Zimmel says one other person was injured and taken to a hospital. He says the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Officers responded to reports of gunshots shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday. Zimmel says no police officers fired a weapon.

The names of the people involved were not immediately released. Grand Forks Air Force Base issued a statement saying an airman was one of the people involved but did not elaborate.

Zimmel says police are investigating.
