A service member assigned to Joint Special Operations Command headquarters is in the hospital after a pistol training incident Monday at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, according to an Army release.

Authorities could not identify the service member’s branch or other details. The injuries happened during a pre-deployment marksmanship exercise.

“The incident is under investigation, but no foul play is expected,” Fort Bragg spokesman Adam Luther told Army Times.

The service member is in stable condition at Womack Army Medical Center on post, Luther said.
