AUSTIN (KXAN) - Special agents are investigating the deaths of three people at Fort Hood, according to fort officials.

The bodies of one man and two children were found Tuesday morning around 7:15 at an on-post home.

Officials are calling the deceased military dependents.

The U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Command is looking into what happened, but does not believe there is a further threat to the community.

I'm guessing the first name of the perp is Hassan. Ok, maybe not...

We shall see.

5.56mm

If the dead are a male and two jouvenile dependents, then I would think the suspect could be a female spouse. Times they are a-changin’

re: Workplace violence.

My first thought as well. What else could it be?

“...then I would think the suspect could be a female spouse....”
********************************************************************
Or possibly a murder of the two children and suicide of the male. In any case, a very sad situation.

Yup.

The perp has at least some female lady parts.

PTSD or Combat fatigue.

I may be jumping the gun here, but I’m guessing this will play out as another veteran going nutz.

If Uncle Sam is still issuing Mefloquine for malaria to our personnel, that could be a distinct possibility.

Wife could be deployed and the husband received the dear John letter.

Since the police are saying there is no threat to the community, it's the only thing that makes since.

Why send a Dear John letter if you’re deployed? That gives the husband to disappear with the kids. He may have found out she was cheating with someone on base. As for no threat, it makes sense. The gunman is dead. He shot himself.

that’s my first guess. Unless he’s a gay dependent.

I thought that was a possibility then I decided the two kids pointed to a more conventional relationship.
