KILLEEN, Texas — Military officials are scouring the background of the Fort Hood shooter, who saw no combat during his 2011 service in Iraq and was not wounded, Secretary of the Army John McHugh told the Senate Armed Services Committee today.

Army Spec. Ivan Lopez — who opened fire on the base Wednesday, killing three and wounding 16 before killing himself — was being treated for depression, anxiety and sleep disturbances, McHugh said. Lopez had been examined by a psychiatrist last month and was prescribed Ambien, among other drugs, and was undergoing evaluation for post-traumatic stress disorder.
