    Default Fort Bliss officials looking for 'active shooter' at El Paso VA hospital

    EL PASO, Texas — The Army is searching for a suspect after an "active shooter" was reported at a Texas military hospital.

    Fort Bliss spokesman Gil Telles says an "active shooter" has been confirmed at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso. Telles says he has no information on casualties or arrests. However, the entire hospital complex and its adjacent veterans' hospital have been placed on lockdown.

    The incident was reported shortly before 4 p.m. local time Tuesday.

    Just saw this:

    (CNN)Two people were wounded Tuesday at the El Paso VA Health Care System in El Paso, Texas, where an active shooter was reported, multiple officials told CNN, citing preliminary information.

    The shooter suffered a self-inflicted wound.

    The extent of the injuries of all three was not immediately clear.

    Earlier, a spokesman for the William Beaumont Army Medical Center, which is adjacent to the VA facility, had said the area was on lockdown.

    Wouldn't be shocked if it is a ex military man with PTSD who is pissed off about the lack of treatment he has received from the VA.

    How we treat our veterans in this country is a fucking disgrace.

    it was a former clerk at the hospital who had bad interactions before with the victim! Just a (sadly) run of the mill work place thing

    EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A man who fatally shot a psychologist at a West Texas veterans' hospital before turning the gun on himself was a former clerk at the clinic who had threatened the victim in 2013, the FBI said Wednesday.

    The FBI identified the gunman in Tuesday's shooting as Jerry Serrato, 48. Douglas Lindquist, who heads the FBI's El Paso office, said Serrato used a .380-caliber handgun to shoot Dr. Timothy Fjordbak, 63, and himself at the El Paso Veterans Affairs Health Care System at Fort Bliss.

    Officials did not provide a motive for the shooting. Fjordbak had reported Serrato made a verbal threat against him at an El Paso supermarket in 2013. Lindquist said Serrato had some sort of perceived or real grievance against Fjordbak and had said something to the effect of, "I know what you did and I will take care of it."
