Afghan Soldier Fires at US Soldier, Killing Him; American Troops Fire Back, Kill Afghan Shooter

An Afghan official said an Afghan soldier opened fire on U.S. troops today (April 8, 2015), killing at least one and wounding two others before he was shot dead, the CBS News website reports.

A U.S. official confirmed that the slain service member was American.

Gen. Fazel Ahmad Sherzad -- police chief for eastern Nangarhar province -- said the attack came after a meeting between Afghan provincial leaders and a U.S. embassy official in the compound of the provincial governor of Jalalabad.

He added that the American troops immediately returned the fire, killing the Afghan soldier.
