This is the third attack on U.S. troops in a week by members of Afghan security forces who were supposed to be allies.
Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi told the Associated Press the shooter is a member of Helmand police named Asadullah.
Ahmadi claims Asadullah had been working with U.S. service members to train local Afghan Police.
Ahmadi says after the fatal shooting of the U.S. troops, Asadullah joined the Taliban insurgency.
