Details were few Monday, but the Associated Press reports that a shooting Sunday at the Grand Forks Air Force Base left one airman dead. His identity was not immediately released.

A base spokeswoman told the Grand Forks Herald that she can’t comment on whether anyone was taken into custody in connection with the shooting, or if the shooting appears to be self-inflicted. But she said there is no threat to public safety or search for any suspect, the newspaper reported.

Military officials told the AP that normal operations were continuing at the base Monday and that the base was not locked down.

The base, established in 1955 and home base of the 319th Air Base Wing, supports 2,100 active duty and civilian employees, according to its website. The base is about 15 miles west of Grand Forks.
