BAGHDAD - An American soldier opened fire in a "stress clinic" at Baghdad's Camp Liberty and killed five American service members, NBC News reported Monday.

Contrary to earlier reports, the soldier did not kill himself but was overpowered and taken into U.S. custody.

Military officials were continuing their investigation and were preparing charges against the soldier in custody.

The military said in a statement that the shooting occurred about 2 p.m. at the base which is near Baghdad International Airport.

The toll was the highest for U.S. personnel in a single attack since April 10, when a suicide truck driver killed five American soldiers with a blast near a police headquarters in the northern city of Mosul.

On May 2, two American soldiers died after an attacker wearing an Iraqi army uniform opened fire near the northern city of Mosul. The assailant was also killed.
