FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) - The three soldiers killed during the Fort Hood shooting Wednesday have been identified.

Lt. Gen. Mark Milley confirmed the names of the fallen soldiers Friday afternoon at a press conference. A memorial will be held next Wednesday.

Sgt. Daniel Michael Ferguson, 39, was from Mulberry, Florida, and had just returned from Afghanistan. His fiancee, Kristen Haley, is also a soldier and told WTSP-TV in Tampa that he was killed trying to hold a door shut to stop the shooter. Ferguson was a transportation supervisor who had been deployed to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.

38-year-old Sgt. Carlos Alberto Lazaney Rodriguez, of
Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, planned to retire from the military soon after serving 20 years, Aguadilla Mayor Carlos Mendez told Mayra Cuevas of CNN en Español. Lazaney Rodriguez was a unit supply sergeant who had served in Kuwait and Iraq.

Sgt. Timothy Wayne Owens, 37, was a counselor in the Army and had served in Iraq.
Owens was a heavy vehicle driver who had also been deployed in Iraq and Kuwait.

"Very terrible that they had to shoot my son," his mother, Mary Muntean told WICS-TV in Springfield Illinois
". "He was a good person. Why would they shoot a good person that was helping them?"

Milley says Spc. Ivan Lopez killed the three, and then himself, Wednesday on post after a verbal altercation that escalated.
