SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Officials say soldier who shot a fellow service member at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio has surrendered and is in military custody.

Authorities locked down the base, but reopened it two hours later.
Boller said the female victim was transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center, which is also on the post.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- San Antonio police have arrested a gunman for shooting at the main gate of Fort Sam Houston.
A San Antonio police officer says police arrested a gunman Monday afternoon and turned him over the military authorities. The officer was speaking anonymously because the person were not authorized to speak to the media.
Kathy Salazar, a staff member in the base public affairs office, said the base was on lock down, but could offer no additional details.
A San Antonio television station showed one person taken away in an ambulance, but it was not immediately clear who was injured or how.
