Owens’ mother, Mary Muntean, of Effingham, Ill., said she was notified of her son’s death on Wednesday, as she celebrated being reunited with a daughter she had given up for adoption at birth.

Sgt. Timothy Owens is among four soldiers, including the shooter Ivan Lopez, killed and 16 others were wounded in the Fort Hood shooting.

Owens reportedly earned his GED diploma after jointing the Army in 2004, the AP reports.

Separately, one of the wounded was identified as Maj. Patrick Miller, a 32-year-old Iraq War veteran, New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday.
