AMMAN, Jordan (NBC News) — Two Americans were shot dead Monday at a police training center in Jordan, according to U.S. defense officials and a Jordanian security source.

A Jordanian security source told NBC News that several people also were injured in the incident, which took place in a cafeteria. The shooter was killed, the source added.

There was no immediate comment from the Pentagon.

The U.S. Embassy in Jordan told NBC News it had received reports about a "security incident" at the Jordanian International Police Training Center and was in contact with local authorities.
