Another Shooting At Fort Hood Base

One person was killed and 14 injured in a shooting Wednesday at Fort Hood, and officials at the base said the shooter is believed to be dead. The details about the number of people hurt came from a senior U.S. defense official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the information publicly. Fort Hood said in a statement posted online that its Directorate of Emergency Services had an initial report that the shooter was dead, but that the report was unconfirmed. Additional details were not immediately available. The Army said on its official Twitter feed that the base is still on lockdown, and that injured personnel were being treated at the post’s Carl R. Darnall Medical Center and other local hospitals/Associated Press. More here.
