A Fort Hood official confirmed early this morning that a Killeen Daily Herald photo circulating the internet is not of the man allegedly responsible for the April 2 shooting on post.
The image, dated 2010, was used without permission by other media outlets which identified the man in the photo as the shooter. Fort Hood spokesman Tyler Broadway said the man, also named Ivan Lopez, was a soldier at Fort Hood in 2010. The man in the photo is still alive and not involved in the attack, Broadway said.
The Herald temporarily removed the photo from its website to prevent its circulation with other media outlets' reports of Wednesday's shooting.
