BERLIN (AP) -- The U.S. Army said Wednesday it was investigating an incident in which two rounds fired by a Bradley armored vehicle hit the roof of a school in southern Germany, causing some damage.
There were no injuries but the roof of the elementary school was slightly damaged Tuesday afternoon in Kirchenthumbach, about three miles north of the training ground of the U.S. base at Grafenwoehr, said Army spokesman Franz Zeilmann.
One of the rounds that was fired out of range was secured by German police and identified as a 25 mm aluminum training round, he said.
Children were playing in the courtyard at the time, about 3:30 p.m., police in nearby Weiden said. They also said the extent of the damage was small.
Police added that the shots were fired during a live-fire exercise, and said one of the rounds was found in a nearby street.
