A senior UPDF officer at the rank of Major was on Sunday evening shot dead by another soldier at Nakasongola Military Barracks.
In the incident the suspect also injured a junior army officer who intervened to arrest him. He is currently being hospitalized.
The spokesperson of the cantonment Lt. Ibrahim Ssekito says the incident occurred at around 7pm.
