, murdering at least 4 people and injuring at least a dozen others:
KILLEEN, Texas—A shooting at Fort Hood Army post Wednesday left four people dead, including the suspected gunman, and at least a dozen others injured, officials said.
The incident marks the third time there has been a shooting at a U.S. military base in seven months and comes less than five years after another shooting rampage at Fort Hood ended with 13 dead and more than 30 injured.
The Army post, in a press release, said its Directorate of Emergency Services had received an initial report that a suspected shooter had been killed, but was still trying to confirm that. A Defense Department official said the extent of the injuries wasn't immediately clear.
Authorities have identified the suspect as Ivan Lopez, an active-duty soldier who worked as a truck driver, according to officials briefed on the initial investigation. The shooting occurred in a motor-pool area of the base where vehicles are stored and repaired, the officials said.
