As our colleagues, Manny Fernandez and Ashley Southall report, at least four people were killed and several others were injured in a shooting at the Fort Hood base in Texas about 5 p.m. Wednesday.

There was an initial report that a gunman was dead, but the report has not been confirmed, Fort Hood officials said in a statement. The base remained on lock down after 8 p.m. on Wednesday.

Representative Michael McCaul, the chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, said that as many as four people died in the attack, including the gunman.

On a conference call with reporters, Representative McCaul said authorities had identified the suspect as Ivan Lopez but a motive for the shooting remained unclear.

The shooter was wearing an Army uniform, but it was unclear whether he was on active duty, Mr. McCaul said.

He said that law enforcement authorities might have prevented a third shooting, prompting concern that the base is “becoming a target for potential jihadists.”
