FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) — Fort Knox officials say a soldier and his wife have been found fatally shot in their on-post housing unit in what appears to be an episode of domestic violence.

A statement from the central Kentucky Army post says military police found the couple Friday morning after getting a 911 call from the residence. Officers said they heard gunfire inside the residence when they arrived. Both people died at the scene.

The statement says two children were found unharmed in the residence.

Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are investigating. Spokesman Chris Grey said it appears the shootings resulted from a domestic dispute.

The Army said the identities of those involved would not be released until 24 hours after next of kin have been notified.
