DEVELOPING: The mayor of the Fort Hood shooter’s hometown confirmed to Fox News Latino that he is the soldier pictured in a photo posted on his Facebook page.
Ivan Lopez, opened fire Wednesday at Ft. Hood, killing three people and injuring 16 others.
Edgardo Arlequin, the mayor of Guayanilla, Puerto Rico, a personal friend of Lopez who taught him while he was in a band, said the gunman was recently a changed man.
“We raised a good kid, somewhere [down the line] something happened that changed the life of this man,” Arlequin told Fox News Latino. “What I know, from the seven, eight years that I taught him, is that from here he left a great human being.”
Lopez lost his mother and grandfather within a two-month period just five months ago.
