Ft. Hood Commander Michael Milley Speaks Out on Shooting, Aftermath

As the Commander of the Fort Hood Army Base in Killeen, Texas, Lieutenant. General Mark Milley has had the difficult duty in recent days of providing information about last Wednesday's shooting spree at the base, which left three soldiers dead and 16 wounded. The shooter, a soldier, killed himself. According to this article in the San Antonio Express-News,

Fort Hood commander Lt. Gen. Mark Milley said the shooting apparently followed an argument Lopez had with another soldier on the post. 
Milley said no evidence suggests that the shooting spree and killings were premeditated.

His official biography provides a depth of detail on Lt. Gen. Milley's 34-year career in the Army and Special Forces. His deployments include Egypt, Panama, Haiti, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iraq and Afghanistan.
