    LONDON — Two Royal Navy personnel were shot, one fatally, on board a British nuclear-powered submarine in port on Friday and a serviceman was arrested on suspicion of murder, officials said.

    The second person shot on board the submarine Astute was taken to hospital and was in a stable condition following the incident at the southern English port of Southampton, police added.

    One man was arrested following the incident, which took place at around 12:10 p.m. local time (7:10 a.m. ET). Police said it was not related to terrorism and there was no risk to the public.

    "Two Royal Navy personnel have been involved in a firearms incident at Southampton docks," Britain's defense ministry said in a statement. "Sadly, one has now died as a result of his injuries."

    Police added that "a man, also a member of the Royal Navy, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder."

    The Telegraph newspaper reportedthe dead man was an officer and that he was shot by an enlisted man during a guard handover.

    The suspect "got into an argument then just went crazy and began shooting people. He has not served in Afghanistan so it doesn't appear to be related to combat stress like PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)," a source told The Telegraph.

    BBC News reportedthat a crew member was overpowered by others after the shooting.

    The $1.64 billion submarine, which has a crew of 98, arrived in Southampton on Wednesday from its base in Faslane, Scotland, for an informal five-day visit.

                WTF does an enlisted man need a firearm for on a submarine? Yes he's military, blah blah blah, but what function would it really serve on a pressurized tube?
