Investigators search home of Fort Hood gunman

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Investigators today have been searching the home of the man who opened fire yesterday at Fort Hood in Texas, killing three people and wounding more than a dozen others before taking his own life.

A spokesman at Fort Hood say they've also been questioning the wife of the soldier, who's been identified as Ivan Lopez.

A top Army official says the soldier had seen a psychiatrist last month, and didn't show any signs of being a threat to himself or others. Army Secretary John McHugh adds that there are no apparent ties to extremist groups.

He says the soldier didn't see any combat during a four-month deployment to Iraq in 2011.

A woman who lived in the same apartment complex as Lopez near Fort Hood says not many people knew him or his wife very well, because they had just moved in a few weeks ago. She says she would see Lopez in uniform going to his car every morning, and that he was friendly.

At a hospital that's treating nine of the survivors of the shooting, doctors say at least three are in critical condition today, but they are expected to survive.
