Update: Fort Hood shooter was being seen for mental issues

The suspect in the Fort Hood shooting yesterday had been in the US Army since 2008, had a clean record behaviorally, but was seeing a psychiatrist for what he had thought was a traumatic brain injury.

Spc. Ivan Lopez, 34, was “undergoing a variety of treatments and diagnoses of mental health issues ranging from depression to anxiety to sleep disturbance,” Army Secretary John McHugh said today.

After killing three and wounding 16 more, Lopez placed his gun next to his head and pulled the trigger.
