WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The U.S. Department of Defense in Washington says three members of the U.S. Armed Forces were wounded in a movie theater shooting in Colorado and one is unaccounted for.

The agency says a Navy sailor was injured and one sailor who was at the theater early Friday morning in Aurora can’t be located. Two Air Force airmen were also wounded.

Both branches of the military are working with the families of the service members to make sure they’re cared for.

The Defense Department also says the suspect, James Holmes, is not a past or current member of any branch or component of the Armed Forces.
