The bodies of three people, two of them children, were discovered at an on-base residence in Fort Hood, Texas, the Army said in a news release.
The bodies -- one man and two children -- were found about 8:15 a.m. ET, and the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command has launched a probe, according to the release.
No further details were available, and the identifications of the deceased won't be released until the next of kin is notified, the Army said.
Chris Grey, spokesman for the criminal investigation command, could not provide further details but said, "We do not believe there is any further threat to the community at this time."
