ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) New details emerge in the movements of alleged Fort Hood shooter, Ivan Lopez, who officials say "indiscriminately fired" at other soldiers. "The alleged shooter, specialist Ivan Lopez, initially opened fire with a Smith and Wesson .45 caliber semi-automatic hand gun near the intersection of 72nd street and Tank Destroyer boulevard," Chris Grey, a spokesman for the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, told reporters at a news conference. "The subject then proceeded to travel to two other nearby buildings, entering those locations, and opening fire. In transit to those locations, while in his personal vehicle, he indiscriminately fired at other soldiers while moving from one location to another," Grey went on to say. Lieutenant General Mark A. Milley also publicly disclosed the names of three victims killed as a result of the shooting during the press conference. Among the victims was Army Sergeant Timothy Owens, 37, a recently married native of Effingham, Illinois, who was shot in the chest at close range, his mother-in-law told the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper. Sgt. First Class Danny Ferguson, 39, from Florida, had just returned from Afghanistan and reportedly died while trying to barricade a door to keep the shooter away. The third fatality was Carlos Lazaney, 38, of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.
