FORT HOOD, Texas - A soldier opened fire Wednesday at Fort Hood, killing three people and wounding several others before taking his own life, law enforcement sources told CBS News.
The incident occurred Wednesday afternoon at Fort Hood, the site of a notorious 2009 mass shooting.
Law enforcement sources said four people were killed, including the gunman, who died of a self-inflicted wound. Officials said several people were wounded, although the exact number was not immediately clear. At one point there were reports that as many as 14 people had been wounded.
Sources told CBS News the shooter had been identified as 34-year-old soldier Ivan Lopez. A source said the violence apparently stemmed from some sort of soldier dispute.
In Chicago, President Barack Obama said he was following the situation closely. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was also informed, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said.
"We're heartbroken that something like this might have happened again," Obama said, referring to the 2009 massacre. "I want to just assure all of us we are going to get to the bottom of what happened."
Warning sirens went off on Wednesday afternoon and all personnel were urged to shelter in place as the base went on lockdown.
"There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported. Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time," the post said in a brief statement.
A man who said he was a witness told CBS affiliate KWTX that about 20 shots were fired at a post motor pool. The man said he saw a soldier jumping over a fence and running away, but it was not clear whether that solider may have been the shooter.
First responders from surrounding communities headed to the post, home of the Army's 1st Cavalry Division.
They didn’t learn much from the last shooting, did they? The base is still a “Gun Free Zone”—AKA “Killing fields”
Uh, no one could shoot back. That's what happened.
Ivan Lopez? Muzzie convert?
Zeb, from Inola, Oklahoma.
All dressed in black....
That's not the kind of assurance that most patriotic Americans are looking for.
Meanwhile, Obama is fundraising.
Ivan Mohammad Lopez perhaps!!
Its three dead..they are the TRUE victims here..the shooting scumbag should NOT be included in the list..prayers for the victims so sad that these brave men could not defend themselves on a military base..thanks for nothing Bill Clinton..and thanks for nothing those who did not overturn this disgraceful law
“Some sort of soldier dispute”
Not that he recently or at some point converted to radical Izzlam...no, that couldn’t be it...just some driveby soldier dispute...
“A source said the violence apparently stemmed from some sort of soldier dispute.”
There have been shootings which have happened over things like infidelity, etc, but those incidents usually involved the shooter and one, maybe two victims. This seems to be more than a “soldier dispute”.
We’ll probably quietly hear about any religious, and or political affiliation from overseas news sources within the following 8 weeks.
So heartbroken that he chose to keep the military disarmed.
"What was that?"
I don't know."
"Did it -- did it kind of sound like a gunshot?"
"I dunno. You think?"
"Could be. Well, one thing's for sure ..."
"It's not a terrorist attack."
"Oh, no, definitely not. We haven't had a single one of those since Obama was elected."
Folks Im gonna do MY Best to to help you the little people take these other folks Guns Away From Them”....BHO
One has to wonder at who is behind our recruitment of these terrorists?
and who was the POS who accused a shooter of being in the Tea-Party?hmm, was it “Brian Something”? anyone wonder if he is demanding the name of the shooter ?
Right after they get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi, Fast and Furious, The IRS Scandal, The Healthcare.gov website, Solyndra, Monitoring James Rosen's emails and phone calls, The hacking of Sharyl Attkissons computer.........
Someone else posted that they arrested that particular guy already.
wth kind of wording is that? so non-committal... not "might have happened again." it did happen again... no "might" about it... he is diabolical...
A partial list of other things that this President has gotten "to the bottom of":
Post some armed guards FGS!
That was his line when the IRS scandal broke.
How's that investigation going?
If its not a Muslim, if they can’t find a motive, I BET they fabricate it to blame the Tea Party. Right in time for the midterms.
they IDed the Shooter’s CAR,,which means they saw the SOB coming....
WHAT SORT of Military Installation leaves the front door open and invites armed attacks on Unarmed personnel?
I was just going to post the same question. Not going to speculate, but this is just sickening. Still a ‘gun free zone’ - WHY????
Ivan Lopez doesnt have the right sort of name to be labeled a Tea Party villain.
Thank God for that.
Good deal, hadn’t heard that!
Hey, they can make up some BS, like he’s working for the Tea Party in alliance with Putin and the Chilean eight wing. They will make up ANYTHING.
Well ... I hope that poster knew what he was talking about ... :-) ...
Here is a quick pic,
Blood? What blood????
we can pretty much assume what Chris Matthews will be spewing tomorrow.
Mac daddy set aside two minutes from his busy schedule of fund raising, party planning and giving lying speeches to say he was following this closely.
That’s as believable as rocks growing leg and winning a 100 yard race.
Uh—the answer to your question is the Commander in Chief-—
The buck stops with him.
Too bad he’s dumber than dirt.
I know, it’s like he’s talking about the family dog or something. “Oh the dog pooped on the rug. Oh we thought something like this might happen again.”
they can and do! and the low info types will lap it up like cotton candy.
Those responsible for the poor performance of the positive corrective action implemented after Hassan need to be cashiered (including Bammy).
I know I posted one quite a while back.
There are so many servicemen on psych drugs now that we’re dammed lucky there aren’t more shootings. They hand those drugs out like candy.
Bammy said bottom? Heh, heh, heh.
hes a boneheaded arrogant self absorbed evil little incompetant figure head for his mooselim buddies.
I missed it. So I have to ask about that why ‘you know say hi me’??? Most of my graphics are a few minutes of diddling. Just to post in the thread before it “dies”. Yours are outstanding.
So, yes, I believe it's terrorism. And don't be surprised if something happens tomorrow, too.
And Obama can be heartbroken again.
Chris Matthews:Tonight I want to open my program regarding the Fort Hood incident that occurred last night,and Sarah Palin!
I was simply saying that I had posted a thread at 16:41:10 GMT thas all.,
were being assured that this was not connected to terrorism
It Was Terrorism whether it was connected to the JIHAD or NOT for cryin all night
Disgraceful and IDIOTIC, until I had heard of this law in 2009, who in their rightful mind would have thought the strongest nation on earth didn’t allow their soldiers (trained and ready for WAR in theory) to carry guns on American military base ON AMERICAN freak’n SOIL!
LIBS REALLY ARE THE STUPIDEST AND MOST EVIL PEOPLE on Earth!!
