Soldier Opens Fire At Fort Hood; 4 Dead, Several Injured (CBS Dallas/Fort Worth)
FORT HOOD (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - A soldier opened fire Wednesday on fellow service members at the Fort Hood military base, killing three people and wounding 16 before committing suicide at the same post where more than a dozen people were slain in a 2009 attack, authorities said.
The shooter, who served in Iraq in 2011, had been undergoing an assessment to determine whether he had post-traumatic stress disorder, according to Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, the senior officer on the base. He was also undergoing psychiatric treatment for depression.
There was no indication the attack was related to terrorism, Milley said “although we are not ruling anything out.”
