Ivan Lopez, the Fort Hood shooter who killed three people and injured more than a dozen others before taking his own life, was being evaluated for post traumatic stress disorder.
According to Army officials, Lopez began firing with a semiautomatic pistol in the Fort Hood motor pool around 4:30 pm. He kept shooting until a military police officer approached him with her gun drawn, at which point he turned his gun on himself. At the same time, Fort Hood went into a lockdown and victims were transported to Scott and White Memorial Hospital in Tempe, Texas. The lockdown lifted around 9 pm.
