- Three Dutch commandos who traveled to the US for military training were shot over the weekend.
- One of the commandos, who was off duty at the time of the incident, died on Sunday night.
- The Dutch defense ministry said the other two men are "conscious and able to speak."
A Dutch commando who was training in the US has died after he was shot outside a hotel in Indianapolis, the Netherlands' defense ministry said on Monday.
"His family and colleagues were at his side," the ministry said.
The commando and two of his colleagues were shot and wounded around 3:30 a.m. local time on Saturday morning outside the Hampton Inn in Indianapolis. All three soldiers, who were members of the Netherlands Commando Corps and traveled to the US for military training, were off duty when the shooting occurred.
The other two men who were wounded are "conscious and able to speak," the defense ministry said Monday.
Local police said they believe some sort of altercation between the three commandos — whose identities have not been released — and the shooter led to the incident, and no arrests have been made, the Associated Press reported on Monday.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department could not immediately be reached by Insider for comment on the investigation.
The Dutch commandos were training at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, which is south of Indianapolis, the Indiana National Guard told WISH.
