NEW YORK, April 03. /ITAR-TASS/. A shooting at the US Fort Hood military base has left four people dead and 16 injured, the base Commander Lt Gen Mark Milley said at a press conference.
The incident occurred not far from the building of the military medical center. The identity of the shooter has not been disclosed. However, the media reported that the perpetrator was an Iraq War veteran, 34-year-old Ivan Lopez, who supposedly suffered from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). The motives behind the shooting are unknown.
According to preliminary information, Lopez opened fire following a disagreement with another serviceman. The shooter was dressed in a military uniform and armed with a pistol. He fired around 20 shots, and later shot himself.
Milley said there was no indication that the shooting in Fort Hood was related to terrorism. The base commander noted that Lopez served in Iraq for 4 months in 2011.
