(Reuters) - The suspected shooter who killed three people at the U.S. Army base in Fort Hood before killing himself was being seen by a psychiatrist and showed no signs of violence or suicidal tendencies, U.S. Army Secretary John McHugh said on Thursday.

McHugh also told a U.S. Senate committee there was no indication that the soldier was involved with any extremist organizations.
