Prior to his shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, Spc. Ivan Lopez posted a number of comments on various subjects on Facebook. The investigators of this tragic incident said that “we are examining all Face Book posts of Lopez to determine his possible intention of shooting and they are enough for us to check his mental status”. Few days ago, Lopez had fired a volley of bullets at his fellow soldiers at Ford Hood and it was the second tragic incident in the last 5 years.
The officials of Army said in repeated press conferences that Lopez was on medication and he was suffering from anxiety and mental breakdown. They further said that he was being evaluated for post-traumatic stress and the motive of his Fort Hood shooting is totally unknown. But, the Commander of the base Lt. Gen. Mark A claims that “the shooter might have argued with his fellow soldiers before opening the fire and it was primarily investigated that he had not intentionally fired at soldiers”.
Furthermore, it has been learned from reliable sources that Lopez had purchased his 45-caliber pistol along with a bunch of bullets from a private shop and he did not register his gun in the base. On the other hand, Ivan the father of Lopez said that “there might have been some serious issue behind otherwise my son was a great man”.
