Four confirmed dead in Fort Hood shooting, including identified suspect

FORT HOOD, TX- A Congressman representing the Killeen area has confirmed four people have died, including the alleged suspect, in a shooting on Fort Hood.

That shooter is identified tonight as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez, an Army Specialist. We do not yet know a potential motive. 

A Fort Hood official says reports circulating within the Justice Department indicate the shooter died of what appears to be a self-inflicted wound. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is still ongoing.

NBC News is reporting at this hour that four are dead, including the gunman, and at least 11 others were wounded in the shooting. They have all been taken to local hospitals. Their conditions are unknown at this time; however, military officials say one victim is in "extremely grave" condition.
