Wasn't there a multiple slaying fairly recently by someone in the US military, where it was felt warning signs had been ignored?

Edit to add: I was thinking of the Fort Worth killings in 2009

Immediately after the shooting, analysts and public officials openly debated Hasan's motive and preceding psychological state: A military activist, Selena Coppa, remarked that Hasan's psychiatrist colleagues "failed to notice how deeply disturbed someone right in their midst was."
Not taking sides on this, just wondering if cases like this are uppermost in the minds of those insisting on an evaluation. Or maybe that's naive.
