Fort Hood Scene of Another Deadly Shooting Spree

By The Prophet of Life

 

Fort Hood Army Base in Killeen Texas, the scene of a deadly shooting spree that left 18 dead and 32 wounded a few years ago, was again the scene of a deadly shooting spree. Four people have been confirmed dead and at least sixteen more have been wounded, three critically. Authorities stated that the shooting was soldier on soldier violence. The dead included the shooting suspect, initially identified as Specialist Ivan Lopez, an enlisted soldier. He was undergoing treatment for depression and PTSD. Lopez was a truck driver in the Army who transferred to Fort Hood two months ago. He was in uniform at the time of the shootings. Although there were initially reports of a second shooter, authorities have identified Lope as acting alone. It has also been stated that Lopez died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound from the same .45 caliber pistol that was used to shoot the victims. No motive for the shooting has been identified at this time. Our condolences go out to the victims and their families.
