US Iraq death toll rises to 50.
The 4th Infantry Division facility came under attack late last night, Central Command said.
It brought the US death toll to 50 since May 1 when US President George Bush declared an end to major combat in Iraq.
A total of 165 Americans have been killed in combat in Iraq - 18 more than died in the 1991 Gulf War.
The shooting took place 25 miles east of Baqouba, in an area where US troops have repeatedly come under attack.
