Fort Hood shooting spree: 'Texans' hearts are once again very heavy'

By Tom Watkins, Ben Brumfield and Josh Rubin

A day after a shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, left three soldiers dead and 16 wounded, a profile emerged Thursday of the killer as an experienced soldier who was grappling with mental illness, but no answers were forthcoming as to a possible motive.

The incident began Wednesday at 4 p.m., when Spc. Ivan Lopez, 34, went from one building at the sprawling Texas military base to a second, firing his .45-caliber handgun.

Lopez then put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, ending his life.

Investigators have downplayed the possibility that terrorism may have been involved, but said they were keeping open minds.

    Most of whatever you say happens to be supprisingly legitimate and that makes me ponder why I had not looked at this with this light previously. This particular piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. Nonetheless there is one issue I am not too comfy with so while I try to reconcile that with the core theme of the issue, permit me observe just what the rest of your readers have to say.Nicely done.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Iím amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog thatís equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.
