Drapsmannen på Fort Hood beskrives som en Army specialist med mentale problemer. Han heter Ivan Lopez.

Han skal ha lidd under post-traumatic-stress-disorder. Lopez var fire måneder i Irak i 2011.

Man kjenner foreløpig ikke til at det har vært noe politisk motiv. Men klok av skade utelukker man ingenting.

 

The suspect, a soldier who had served in Iraq, «had behavioral health and mental health» issues, Milley told reporters late Wednesday.

The general said there was no known motive for the shooting.

«There is no indication that this incident is related to terrorism, although we are not ruling anything out,» he said.

The initial report is the incident started as a soldier-on-soldier attack, law enforcement sources told CNN.

Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas, was treating eight patients with another expected to arrive shortly, said Dr. Glen Couchman, the chief medical officer. Three patients were in critical condition, while «the remaining are all seriously injured,» he said.

 

Oppmerksomheten vil dreie seg om hvordan han fikk kjøpt et våpen på basen, og om man burde sett et voldelig potensial. Amerikanere nekter å akseptere at deres sønner og fedre blir drept på militærets egne baser på amerikansk jord. Det er too much. Samtidig vet alle at mange hjemvendte soldater sliter med store traumer.
