CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (WNCT) — Military officials are investigating the deaths of three children at Camp Lejeune in two separate incidents last Saturday.

Officials at Camp Lejeune told WNCT’s Cheyenne Pagan that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service would be looking into the incidents and would not have further comment during the process, including who the children were.

Ace A. Padilla with the U.S. Marines issued this statement Wednesday evening:

“We are aware of the tragic passing of three dependent children in two separate incidents on MCB Camp Lejeune April 16, and offer our deepest condolences to the families of those affected. There was no shooting incident tied to either event.

“Out of respect for the families and the investigative process, we are not providing additional information and NCIS does not comment on or confirm details relating to ongoing investigations.”
