Soldier from western NY among Fort Hood wounded

ALLEGANY (AP) — An Iraq War veteran from western New York was among the 16 people wounded during a shooting rampage at Fort Hood in Texas, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday.

Maj. Patrick Miller, 32, was wounded during the attack Wednesday by a gunman who killed three people before committing suicide.

Miller, who lives with his wife outside Austin, Texas, is a native of Allegany in Cattaraugus County.

His condition wasn’t released, but a doctor at a Texas hospital treating some of the wounded said he doesn’t expect any more deaths resulting from the shooting.

Miller’s family did not respond to phone calls and emails Thursday. His parents, Carole and Dr. John Miller, were en route to Texas on Thursday, according to local media reports.

Miller was a twice-deployed Iraq veteran who graduated from his hometown college, St. Bonaventure University, in 2003 and earned masters’ degrees in business and public administration from Syracuse University in 2009, his Facebook page said. He was also enrolled in the Reserve Officer Training Corps while at St. Bonaventure, a private Catholic school near the Pennsylvania border.
