A 21-year-old soldier has died after being shot during an exercise at a Ministry of Defence training ground in Kent.
The man has not been named but his next of kin have been informed.
A police spokeswoman declared: "Police are investigating following a shooting incident at a Ministry of Defence training ground in Lydd, Romney Marsh.
"Kent Police were alerted to the incident at around 2.45pm on Wednesday. A 21-year-old soldier died in the incident.
"Kent Police is working closely with the Army and the Health and Safety Executive."
A spokeswoman for the MoD declared it is also investigating the incident.
Five years ago a 20-year-old soldier was killed during a training exercise at Lydd ranges, that are 15 miles (24km) south of Ashford.
The guardsman Ian Wright, who served with the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
The ranges have been used for military training for almost 150 years, according to the MoD.
They are situated on the reclaimed lands of the historic Romney Marsh and they are used for live firing with a danger area extending out to sea.
Red flags are flown during firing, when the access around the area is banned.
