AUSTIN, Texas, April 2 (Reuters) - A soldier suffering from mental health issues killed three people and wounded 16 others at the Fort Hood U.S. Army base in central Texas on Wednesday before turning a gun on himself and committing suicide, the base's commander said.

Lieutenant General Mark Milley declined to identify the shooter and said there were no indications that the incident was linked to terrorism.
