Afghan soldiers take part in combat training at the Afghan National Army training camp on the outskirts of Kandahar.

An Afghan soldier thought to be an army trainer has shot dead two U.S. civilians and a fellow Afghan soldier during a weapons-training exercise at a military camp in northern Afghanistan.

NATO said in a statement that it was investigating with Afghan authorities whether it was a deliberate attack or an accident.

The gunman himself also died in the July 20 incident, in unclear circumstances.

A NATO soldier and an Afghan service member were also wounded at the training facility near Mazar-e Sharif, the largest city in the relatively peaceful north of the country.
