The commando died of his injuries on Sunday night surrounded by relatives and colleagues, the ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The other two wounded soldiers are conscious, the Dutch ministry said.

The shooting happened around 3:30am local time (08:30 BST) in the downtown entertainment district of Indianapolis. The Dutch Defense Ministry said the three soldiers were in Indiana for training.

Indianapolis police said they believed some type of altercation between the three victims and another person or persons led to the shooting. No arrests have been made.

The Indiana National Guard said the soldiers had been training at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, a 1,000-acre (405-hectare) complex about 40 miles (65 kilometers) southeast of Indianapolis.
