A shooting has left at least four people dead, including the gunman, and 16 injured at a US Army base in Fort Hood, Texas, the site of another mass shooting in 2009, the US military said.
Fort Hood commander Lt Gen. Mark Milley told a news conference that the shooter was a serving soldier and that he had died on the scene from self-inflicted gunshot wounds after being confronted by a military police officer.
Milley said there was no indication the incident was linked to “terrorism”.
He told reporters the soldier, who he did not name because his family had not yet been informed, had served in Iraq for four months in 2011. The soldier was being treated for depression and anxiety, and was being evaluated for possible post-traumatic stress disorder.
Milley however did not draw a link between the gunman’s medical evaluation and the shooting.
