One man and two children were found dead Tuesday morning in an on-post residence, according to Fort Hood officials.
All three were Army dependents, and it’s unclear what caused the deaths. Special agents from the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division are investigating.
The bodies were discovered about 7:15 a.m.
There is “no further threat to the community,” according to a statement from Fort Hood released about 1 p.m. Tuesday.
The names of the man and children were not released.
It’s unclear when more details about the case will be released.
“We will release additional information at the appropriate time and as the investigation allows,” said Chris Grey, a spokesman for the CID in Quantico, Va., said.
While CID would not confirm the location where the bodies were found, military police did close Hughes Street in Pershing Park, a subdivision of Fort Hood housing, on Tuesday. Investigators were seen outside a residence on Hughes Street.
Pershing Park is accessible from Fort Hood Street in Killeen, and the post housing there is typically occupied by enlisted soldiers and their dependents.
