It happened again at Fort Hood. A soldier opened fire Wednesday, killing four, including himself, and wounding 16 others.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso has more details on Wednesday's shooting:

Four people are dead and 16 injured -- three critically -- after officials say 34-year-old Ivan Lopez, a soldier at Fort Hood, walked into a base building and pulled out a .45-caliber handgun.

(Milley) "Opened fire, got into a vehicle, fired from a vehicle, got out of the vehicle, walked into another building and opened fire again and then was engaged by local law enforcement here at Fort Hood."

Lieutenant General Mark Milley says the accused took his own life.

He served in combat and was in the diagnosis process for post-traumatic stress disorder. And five years after terror struck at Fort Hood, officials aren't ruling out any motive.
