Army: Possible altercation ‘immediately preceded’ Fort Hood shooting – CNN.com


Killeen, Texas (CNN) — Authorities investigating this week’s deadly shooting spree at Fort Hood said Friday that an altercation between Spc. Ivan Lopez and his fellow soldiers, rather than a medical condition, may have led to Lopez opening fire.

“The immediate precipitating factor was more likely an escalating argument in his unit area,” Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, the post’s commanding general, told reporters.

Some of the soldiers involved in the altercation were victims in the shooting, according to Chris Grey, spokesman for the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, who appeared with Milley at a news conference on the sprawling post.
