U.S. Army two-star major general was killed Tuesday in an insider attack at an Afghan military training facility, U.S. Defense and military officials told NBC News.

More than a dozen Western soldiers in all — including several Americans — were shot as high-level officials visited the heavily guarded military complex.

The carnage started when a lone gunman dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire from a window during a meeting at the Afghanistan National Military Academy, located at the Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul. The officials said the death toll is expected to rise given the severity of troops’ injuries.
