BUIES CREEK, N.C. -

A 2nd Lieutenant who graduated from Campbell University in Buies Creek has been identified as one of the victims who was injured in the shooting at Fort Hood on April 2.

Campbell University tweeted out Friday,” Join us in prayer for 2LT John Arroyo '13.” The school goes on to tweet, “He’s recovering in hospital.”

Arroyo is a recent graduate of Campbell University’s Fort Bragg campus.

Arroyo was suffered a gunshot wound to the neck and underwent surgery in Texas, according to a news release the school posted on its website.

Police said Spc. Ivan Lopez may have had a “verbal altercation” with another soldier before Wednesday’s shooting that killed three and injured 16 others.
