Two active-duty airmen with the 319th Reconnaissance Wing at Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota, are dead following a shooting incident on base, the Air Force said Monday.

Base emergency services responded to the scene following the shooting, which occurred around 4:30 a.m. local time, according to a release.

"The incident happened on base in one of our dorms," Staff Sgt. Elijaih Tiggs, a spokesman for the base, told He explained that the dorms are set for first-term, unaccompanied airmen.

"An investigation is ongoing," he added.

The service is withholding the identities of the deceased for 24 hours until family members are notified.

There is no risk to other personnel at this time, officials said.

The 319th executes intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, including those that support Customs and Border Patrol.

The CBP operates the "MQ-9 Predator B aircraft out of Grand Forks and provides high-quality streaming video to first responders," according to the wing's fact sheet. The CBP's drone is unarmed. The wing also assists in the 69th Reconnaissance Group's RQ-4 Global Hawk operational mission.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
