One man was found dead from an apparent gunshot wound early Saturday morning at a North Carolina Marine Corps base, officials announced Saturday afternoon. A second person at the scene is being treated for multiple stab wounds.

Patrol officers at Camp Lejeune responded to a 911 call at an on-base residence at about 4 a.m. where they found the shooting and stabbing victims. The man who'd been shot was found dead. The other man who'd been stabbed was seriously injured, Nat Fahy, a spokesman for the base, said.

There are no other individuals at large who are believed to have been involved in the incident, Fahy told Military.com. The incident occurred in one of the base housing divisions at Camp Lejeune, he said.

Fahy declined to say whether the two men involved were Marines. They were both authorized to be on the base, he said.

The identity of the man killed by the apparent gunshot wound is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The person stabbed was transported to Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune, where he is being treated for his injuries.

No additional details about the stabbing and shooting were immediately available. The incident is under investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, a Marine Corps news release about the incident states.

Two airmen were killed in a shooting earlier this month at an Air Force base in North Dakota. The family of Airman First Class Natasha Aposhian, a 21 year old shot and killed in her dormitory at about 4:30 on June 1, was a victim of domestic violence, her family told the Grand Forks Herald.
