At least 4 killed in shooting at Fort Hood; gunman among dead
CBS News ^ | Wednesday, April 2, 2014 | Staff Writer

Posted on 04/02/2014 5:25:42 PM PDT by Star Traveler

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”

That's not the kind of assurance that most patriotic Americans are looking for.

“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.

"BANG!"

"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 ..."
"What's that?"
"It's not a terrorist attack."
"Oh, no, definitely not. We haven't had a single one of those since Obama was elected."

Ivan Lopez doesnt have the right sort of name to be labeled a Tea Party villain.

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.

I read the alert. While it was specific to one individual. It also said....that there may be others who are going to do the same thing.

So, yes, I believe it's terrorism. And don't be surprised if something happens tomorrow, too.

And Obama can be heartbroken again.

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!!
