A U.S. soldier opened fire on fellow troops at one of the main U.S. bases in Baghdad on Monday, killing five, the U.S. military said.
"The shooter is a U.S. soldier and he is in custody," said Marine Corps Lieutenant Tom Garnett, a U.S. military spokesman.
A U.S. military statement said the shooting took place around 2 p.m. local time at the sprawling base, Camp Liberty, located next to Baghdad airport.

This is terrible. Really an awful and disgusting thing to serve in Iraq and be killed purposefully by one of your own. It appears he had a personal agenda to kill those four in particular, if he had planned for mass casualties that wouldn't be difficult to achieve in that setting.
Also, the title says he killed 4 others then himself, but in the article it says he is in custody. Wonder if they captured him or he is in fact dead.
