Fort Hood Shooter Gets Wake In Hometown In Puerto Rico

A wake is being held in Puerto Rico for the Fort Hood gunman who recently killed three people and injured 16 others at a Texas military base before committing suicide.

Relatives and friends of Army Spc. Iván López arrived Friday at a funeral home in his hometown of Guayanilla.

Family spokesman Glidden López, who is not related to the soldier, said he will be buried Saturday in the southwest coastal town.

Iván López had been receiving treatment for depression and anxiety while being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder. However, Fort Hood officials have said his mental condition was not a "direct participating factor" in the March 2 shootings.

Authorities said the shootings followed an argument related to López's request for taking leave but did not provide details.
