FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) Investigators say unstable mental health may be the underlying cause of a soldier's fatal shooting rampage at Fort Hood this week. They also believe an argument with another service member likely preceded the attack by Specialist Ivan Lopez. Lopez turned his gun on himself after killing three people and wounding 16 others Wednesday at the nation's largest Army post.
KILLEEN, Texas (AP) A clerk at a Texas gun shop that sold the weapons used in two shooting rampages at Fort Hood says the store isn't to blame. Officials say Guns Galore is where Specialist Ivan Lopez bought the pistol used to kill three people and wound 16 others at the military base this week. The same gun shop sold a semi-automatic pistol and high-capacity magazines in 2009 to Nidal Hasan. He then killed 13 people during a shooting rampage at the Army post.
