The U.S. military says an Afghan soldier has shot and killed two U.S. coalition troops in northern Afghanistan.

A spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan, Col. Greg Julian, says the Afghan soldier killed himself immediately after the incident Friday.

A joint U.S.-Afghan military statement says one coalition member died instantly and another died later of wounds.

The names of the troops involved were not given pending notification of next of kin.

The statement said the incident is under investigation.
