Only five years ago, the people of the Fort Hood, an Army post in Texas, suffered at the hands of gunman  Nidal Hasan. During the 2009 shooting spree, Major Hasan took the lives of 13 people and wounded another 32. On Wednesday, April 2nd, Specialist Ivan Lopez walked into two buildings on base and opened fire, killing four and wounding 16 before taking his own life.

Spc. Lopez, 34, was the father of a little girl and a veteran who served in Iraq. He also has been undergoing treatment for mental health issues. Authorities are unclear as to why Lopez opened fire and are working hard to figure out when went wrong.

“There are initial reports there may have been an argument in one of the unit areas,” stated Lt. Gen Mark Milley, the post’s commanding general.


Apparently, Lopez had been undergoing diagnosis procedures for post-traumatic stress disorder. However, he had not been diagnosed as of yesterday.
