Multiple sources are reporting a U.S. Army major general is dead after being shot by an Afghan soldier today at a military training facility in Kabul.  

More than a dozen other American troops were wounded in the same attack.  

The Pentagon is not releasing the general's name.  

If confirmed, he would be the highest ranking U.S. service member to be killed in the war in Afghanistan.  

The Afghan government describes the shooter as a terrorist in an army uniform, who was shot and killed by Afghan troops.
