BUIES CREEK, N.C. — Campbell University says that one of its graduates was wounded during the mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas Wednesday.

According to WTVD, Second Lieutenant John Arroyo was shot in the neck by Spc. Ivan Lopez, who later turned his gun on himself after killing three people and wounding 16 others at the sprawling Texas military base.

A spokesperson for Campbell said Arroyo graduated in 2013 from its Fort Bragg campus.

Arroyo underwent surgery in Texas and is said to be doing well and recovering with his family

The military is still investigating why Lopez started shooting people at the Texas base Wednesday, but said unstable mental health may be a “fundamental, underlying cause.”

Officials said Lopez may have been in an argument with another service member just before the attack.

Lopez was undergoing treatment for depression and anxiety while being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder, base officials said.
