Another Shooting at Fort Hood … 4 Dead Including Gunman … Shooter ID’d as 34 Year Old Fort Hood Soldier Ivan Lopez

 

If we learn nothing from history, be are destined to repeat it …

Sadly, yesterday we were witness to another shooting at Fort Hood where three people were killed and 16 individuals injured before the gunman killed himself. The shooter was identified as 34 year old Fort Hood Army specialist Ivan Lopez. According to Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, the shooter served in Iraq in 2011 and was being treated for “behavioral health and mental health” issues. Lopez  had been undergoing an assessment to determine whether he had post-traumatic stress disorder.

Have we learned nothing from the 2009 Fort Hood shooting where  Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 12 soldiers?

There was a shooting on Fort Hood on Wednesday afternoon.

Three people are dead along with the shooter, and 16 others were injured. All were active duty military.

Thirty-four-year-old Fort Hood soldier Ivan Lopez was identified as the shooter. General Milley said that the shooter was being treated for mental issues, but not yet diagnosed with PTSD. The shooter is married with family in the local area, and he just arrived at Fort Hood in February.

Lopez is said to have been the only gunman.

Gen Milley believes the shooting started when he opened fire in a building. He then left the building, got into his vehicle, and fired. He then got out of his vehicle again and went into another building.  After entering the second building, he became face-to-face with an officer and that is when he shot himself.

UPDATE II: Press Conference (VIDEO)

The suspect, a soldier who had served in Iraq, “had behavioral health and mental health” issues, Milley told reporters late Wednesday.

The general said there was no known motive for the shooting.

“There is no indication that this incident is related to terrorism, although we are not ruling anything out,” he said.

The suspected shooter was wearing combat fatigues, said a U.S. official briefed on the shooting. He was armed with a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun that he purchased recently, said Milley.

      This is just more PC gone bad. The military needs to recognize that this is a war on terrorism and as such, they should have every soldier armed when they are on base.
