MULBERRY, Fla. (AP) — One of the three people killed by a gunman at the Fort Hood, Texas military base was from Florida.
Spc. Ivan Lopez turned his gun on himself after killing three people — including Sgt. First Class Danny Ferguson — and wounding 16 others Wednesday at the base.
Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, the commander of Fort Hood, said Friday that Ferguson was among the three killed.
Ferguson was a 1993 graduate of Mulberry High School, in a small town between Orlando and Tampa.
Mulberry High School Assistant Principal Lori Leverett said Friday that Ferguson was "an all-around nice, guy, very wholesome."
He played high school football, baseball, basketball and ran track.
Leverett said Ferguson didn't attend his 20th class reunion because he was deployed.
Ferguson's mother declined to comment on Friday.
