CNN – Specialist Ivan Lopez went from one building at the sprawling Texas military base to a second, firing a .45 caliber handgun — killing three people and wounding 16 more.
Authorities are downplaying terrorism — although they haven’t ruled it out until the investigation is complete.
“There are initial reports there may have been an argument in one of the unit areas,” Lt. Gen Mark Milley, the post’s commanding general, told reporters late Wednesday.
Officers picked up Lopez’ wife at their apartment near the base in Killeen, and she was cooperating with law enforcement, an FBI official told CNN.
The man, whom a neighbor said often gave her a friendly wave, was plagued by multiple mental health issues.
