Ivan Lopez (34) var lastebilsjåfør i US Army. Han var bare fire måneder i Irak, og fikk ingen skader.
Han gikk på medisiner for psykiatriske problemer, men legene så intet voldspotensiale.
Han er fra Puerto Rico og var en periode stasjonert på Sinai. Mulig ekstremistisk påvirkning undersøkes.
Lopez, who joined the Army in June 2008, was in Iraq for four months in 2011 but his record showed no signs of injury. McHugh said the shooter was a Puerto Rico native, and even though it’s not initially suspected “possible extremist involvement is still being looked at very carefully.”
A spokeswoman for the Puerto Rico National Guard said Lopez joined in 1999 and went on a mission to the Sinai Peninsula in the mid-2000s, according to the Associated Press. Lt. Col Ruth Diaz said Lopez left the Guard for the Army in 2010.
