FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A Fort Hood official confirms the soldier who killed three people and wounded 16 others bought his gun at the same nearby gun shop as the shooter convicted in the 2009 rampage on the military base.

Lt. Gen. Mark Milley said Thursday that Spc. Ivan Lopez purchased a .45-caliber pistol from Guns Galore, a store in Killeen, Texas, on March 1. Authorities say Lopez opened fire Wednesday afternoon on soldiers on base before killing himself with a gunshot.

Guns Galore also is where Nidal Hasan purchased the gun and high-capacity magazines he used to kill 13 people in a 2009 rampage at Fort Hood. An employee from the shop testified at Hasan's court-martial last year.

Employees at Guns Galore declined to comment earlier Thursday.
