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.

    You really don`t have to be a genius to see that this was most likely a murder -suicide, and that`s why there is no further threat to the community.

    It would be nice to have the agency to decide on what I would consider a threat to my Family. If three people are dead, two of them likely children, something is threatening that the Army couldn't defend this family from.

    May we have more information?

    I prey III Corps doesn't try and blame the victims on this one, although it is the MO of the Army

    it's wildly inappropriate to release information to the public in the midst of an ongoing investigation.

    Sounds like the Army is trying to sweep this one under the carpet.
