A Fort Hood official says the shooter in Wednesday afternoon's attack at the central Texas Army post was a soldier being assessed for whether he had PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder.

Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley said the shooter, whose name has not been released by the Army, killed three people and wounded 16 others. All those killed and wounded were military members.

Milley says the shooter opened fire in one building, drove a short distance and open fire in a second building. He was later confronted outside by a military police officer and then used a handgun to take his own life. Milley says there is no indication the shooting was related to terrorism.

The shooter is married and served in Iraq in 2011. A Texas congressman, Rep. Michael McCaul, identified the suspect as Ivan Lopez.

Meanwhile, officials at Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas, say three of the nine patients brought there are in critical condition.

Fort Hood is the same facility where there was a mass shooting in 2009. An Army psychiatrist now on death row killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 others.
