Gunfire Kills 7, Injures 12 In Fort Hood
Two gunmen in military uniform went on a shooting rampage in Fort Hood Thursday afternoon killing seven people and wounding 12 others. One of the gunmen was arrested while the other is at large.

The military post and nearby Temple ISD Schools were locked down because of the incident, officials said. Emergency medical services and rescue personnel from the Nolanville Fire Department responded to the incident and brought the wounded victims to the Damall Army Community Hospital.

Temple police officers were also posted on each TISD campus.

Details are starting to emerge in a shooting at Fort Hood that has left at least seven dead and 12 injured.

KCEN-TV from Waco is reporting that two or more people may have been involved in the shootings around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

The Waco TV station reported that there are two different crime scenes: the SPC and Howve Theater on Battalion Ave.

KCEN-TV reproted that one person is in custody while there are unconfirmed reports that one of the shooters is surrounded by police in the 42006 building on Fort Hood.

The Waco TV station is reproting that the shooter has a high-powered rifle and was reportedly aiming to kill.

KCEN-TV reported that suspect was wearing an Army uniform with a Major's rank. He may have fled to another building.

The Austin American-Statesman reported that a congressional aide for U.S. Rep. John Carter, said he was on the post to attend a graduation service.

He told the Statesman that as he neared the entrance of a building where the service was being held, a soldier with blood on his uniform ran past him and said a man was shooting.

Schannep told the Statesman tha tthe shootings appeared to have occurred in a complex near a theater where the service was scheduled.

He reported being with the injured soldier, who he said appeared to have been struck in the shoulder but did not have life-threatening injuries.

Todd Martin, assistant for communications at the Killeen school district, told the Austin American-Statesman that the district has seven elementary schools and two middle schools on the post itself.

“Those have been locked down since this began,” Martin said. The other schools in the district outside the post have not been locked down, he said.

The victims have not been identified while the Fort Hood website remains down.

Today at a Ft. Hood a shooting took place, taking the lives of 7 people and 12 others are known to be wounded. The shooting took place at Fort Hood in Texas. They have at least one potential suspect in custody and are looking for more. The suicide rate of Army soldiers has been on the rise each month since August. Just last month there were a 17 soldiers that were suspected to have taken their own lives. Just last year the Army had 133 suicides reported, making it the highest rate in Army history. Our thoughts are with those who have lost their lives and the others who are honorably serving our country.

Post by Nama on Thu Nov 05, 2009 3:23 pm

Seven people were killed and 20 wounded in a pair of shootings Thursday at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas, the Army says. An army spokesman in Washington says the base has been locked down following the shootings. Another official told The Asociated Press that at least one shooter had been caught.
The FBI is sending agents to the scene.
Army spokesman Lt. Col. Nathan Banks says the first shooting began at about 1:30 p.m. at a personnel and medical processing office. The facility, called a Soldier Rating and Processing center, handles administrative details for soldiers.
Banks says two shooters were apparently involved. There was no immediate word on who they were, nor on identities of the dead.
Banks says the second incident took place at a theater on the sprawling base.
Another Army official identified that site as the Howze Theater.
That official, who requested anonymity to discuss an evolving incident, said a graduation had been scheduled for 2 p.m. at the theater.
The White House said President Barack Obama was notified of the shootings.

This is covered on television and just happened by what apparently and reportedly is an upset set of of soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, near Waco, Texas.
There are reports of up to three gunmen, one already arrested, two others the subject of a search. 7 are dead and 12 are injured.
Fort Hood is on lockdown now; the 55,000 people not allowed to go anywhere.
There was a graduation ceremony going on at the time of the shooting, according to MSNBC and CNN.
The gunmen were carrying M-16s according to General Russell Honore U.S. Amry (Ret.) on Rich Sanchez Show on CNN just three minutes ago. Fort Hood is one of the largest U.S. Army installations in the country.
This story is developing and much of the information beyond the deaths and injuries, and that the gunmen may be solidiers, is not well-known.
In a funny side note, both NBC and CNN have announced “breaking news” that the president has been informed. Both the liberal stations had to find a reason to put Obama’s name on TV like it matters in any way that someone told him about it.
I think he’s preparing a way to blame George Bush for this, or perhaps putting on his “superobama” costume and he’s going to fly down there and kung fu fight the suspects?

Banks says the second incident took place at a theater on the sprawling base.

He says it is too soon to tell whether there is any link to battle stress or repeated deployments. The Army is suffering a record high suicide rate and other signs of stress from fighting two wars

SWAT Teams are on the scene of a mass shooting at the Fort Hood military base.

The Army says two gunmen opened fire in two different locations. One has been arrested. CNN is reporting that the other shooter is cornered. The base is on lockdown.

Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson says she was told that 7 people are dead; 30 more were wounded. One of the gunmen is among the wounded.

The military says one of the shootings took place inside a soldier processing center. The other happened inside a theater.

Fort Hood is the largest active duty armored post in the United States, and is the only post in the United States that is capable of supporting two full armored divisions.

Army: Soldier kills 12 in Fort Hood shooting

Updated today at 4:13 PM

FORT HOOD, Texas -- Twelve people were killed and 31 wounded in a pair of shootings Thursday at the Fort Hood Army base in Central Texas, the Army says. An army spokesman in Washington says the base was locked down following the shootings.

The FBI is sending agents to the scene.

Lt. Gen Bob Cone said at a news conference that one shooter has been killed and two suspects were apprehended on Thursday.

He says they are all U.S. soldiers.

The shooting began around 1:30 p.m. Cone says that all the casualties took place at the base's Soldier Readiness Center where soldiers who are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening.

He says the primary shooter used two handguns in the attack.

A second incident was reported at a theater on the sprawling base. Another Army official identified that site as the Howze Theater. That official, who requested anonymity to discuss an evolving incident, said a graduation had been scheduled for 2 p.m. at the theater.

President Barack Obama Thursday said the White House was monitoring the situation and tried to assure Americans that he was staying on top of the situation.

Lt. Col. Nathan Banks says it is too soon to tell whether there is any link to battle stress or repeated deployments. The Army is suffering a record high suicide rate and other signs of stress from fighting two wars.

Fort Hood is the largest military facility in the free world. The Army base is home to nearly 65,000 soldiers and family members.

It is headquarters for: the 1st Cavalry Division; 4th Infantry Division's Combat Aviation Brigade; III Corps, First Army Division West; 13th Corps Support Command; 504th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade; 21st Cavalry Brigade; 4th Combat Aviation Brigade; 31st Air Defense Brigade; and 89th Military Police Brigade.

The area is no stranger to the tragedy of mass shootings. In 1991, a man entered a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen and killed 24 people during a 15-minute rampage.

Fort Hood, TX (WSYR-TV/ABC News) - Twelve people have been killed and 31 wounded in a shooting spree at a Texas military base by what officials believe was possibly carried out by an Army officer.

The suspected gunman was identified by ABC News as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.

The shooter was killed and two other suspects, who are also soldiers, have been apprehended, Lt. Gen. Robert W. Cone said.

The gunman used two handguns, Cone said. He wasn't sure if the shooter reloaded the weapons during the attack.

The general called the attack "a terrible tragedy, stunning." He said the community was "absolutely devastated."

The extent of the injuries of victims "varies significantly," according to Cone.

Hey everyone, craziness here around Waco!! I see yall have gotten the "gist" of things. It's of course all over the news here. The gunman, Maj. Malik Nadal Hassan, was a psychiatrist and preparing to be deployed. VERY sad. I am probably going tomorrow to donate blood for the soldiers. So far 12 dead 31 wounded. Luckily, I only know a couple people on the base, and neither one was there today.

Normal Who is Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan?

Post by Nama on Thu Nov 05, 2009 6:23 pm

Who is Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan?

Officials say Hasan is shooter in Ft. Hood attacks

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sources say the shooting suspect in Thursday’s attacks on the Fort Hood Army Post in Texas is Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army mental health professional with who has ties to the Washington, D.C. area.
The attacks on Ft. Hood left 12 people dead and 31 wounded. Authorities killed the gunman, who is said to be Hasan, and apprehended two other soldiers suspected in the attack.
According to the AP, a defense official said Hasan was a mental health professional—either an Army psychologist or psychiatrist. It’s not known if he was treating people at the post.
The AP said that officials are trying to determine if Hasan was his birth name, or if he converted to the Islamic faith at some point in his life. He was believed to have been in his late 30s.
FOX News reports the soldier who was the gunman in the attacks is from Virginia, but they have not confirmed his name. They also report that the shooter was not happy about the prospect of being deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.
According to Lt. Gen. Bob Cone at Fort Hood, the shooter used two handguns in the attacks at the Soldier Readiness Center on Thursday around 1:30 CDT. The gunman was then shot and killed by a civilian policeman.

It's terrible. He actually just came to Fort Hood in July, he was at Walter Reed for six years. They're asking people to wait until tomorrow to give blood, they have too many people in line to be able to get to them all tonight. God bless all those people trying to give blood right now.

By PAM HESS
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - Military officials say the suspected shooter at Fort Hood was a psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for six years before being transferred to the Texas base in July.

The officials had access to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's military record. They said he received a poor performance evaluation while at Walter Reed.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because military records are confidential.

The Virginia-born soldier was single with no children. He was 39 years old.

He is a graduate of Virginia Tech University, where he was a member of the ROTC and earned a bachelor's degree in biochemistry in 1997. He received his medical degree from the military's Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., in 2001. At Walter Reed, he did his internship, residency and a fellowship.

As a person who owns handguns, I would love to know how he killed/injured so many people with only two handguns. Did he stop and reload? If he did, it only shows how twisted his mind really was. Police are searching his apartment now and the house of one of the previously cleared suspects.

Who gives away all their furniture when they leave for deployment? No one I know. He wasn't preparing for deployment, he was preparing for this nightmare.

Normal Authorities had concerns about suspected shooter, reviewed Internet postings

Post by Nama on Thu Nov 05, 2009 7:56 pm

AP source: Authorities had concerns about suspected shooter, reviewed Internet postings

Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

The officials say the postings appeared to have been made by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was killed during the shooting incident that left least 11 others dead and 31 wounded. The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author. They say an official investigation was not opened.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.

One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.

So was this another ball dropped. Did this have to happen?

Normal Web postings

Post by Nama on Thu Nov 05, 2009 8:10 pm

One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.
"To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause," said the Internet posting. "Scholars have paralled (sic) this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers."
