A Houston-area Army psychiatrist has been appointed to oversee the investigation into a shooting at a VA facility that left four veterans dead.
The appointment of Army psychiatrist James C. Nunez, 41, comes days after a gunman killed a gunman at a medical facility in Texas and killed another wounded in a separate shooting.
Nunes has been on administrative leave since the shooting at Fort Hood, Tex., on July 5.
The shootings were carried out by an Army veteran who later died at the hospital.
The names of the victims have not been released.
The Fort Hood shooting was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
Nungesser, who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder, has worked in the Army for nearly 30 years.
The Texas Department of Health and Human Services said Nunezz would be expected to assist in the investigation of the incident.
Nunz has worked at Fort Campbell since 2013, and the military said in a statement on Friday that he was a “professionally qualified psychiatrist.”
The Associated Press reported that Nunezes wife, who works as a social worker in Dallas, was the last person to hear the news.
