MILWAUKEE (AP) - Thirty Wisconsin soldiers are safe after a shooting at Fort Hood in Texas.

Wisconsin National Guard spokesman Maj. Paul Rickert says the 30 members of the 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat based in Camp Douglas were there to train for deployment.

He says he didn't immediately know where they were at the timing of the shooting Wednesday, but says they are all safe and accounted for. He says they live throughout Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin National Guard also posted a message about the soldiers on its Facebook page Wednesday night.

WLUK-TV reports the soldiers are eventually being deployed to Afghanistan, where they are expected to provide airlift missions that will include transporting other soldiers throughout the country.
