Multiple shooter mass shooting at Ft. Hood.
At least seven dead, 20 wounded. Two, possibly three shooters. Possibly still ongoing.
UPDATE: Current information as of 6:30PM MST: 12 dead, 31 injured. One shooter, Major Malik Nadal Hasan, an army psychiatrist who is reported to be a late convert to Islam, is dead. Two other suspects released, a fourth possibly in custody. Weapon(s) used were handgun(s). Too much still unknown / unreleased.
Contrary to what some think, I doubt seriously that there will be any incidents of whack-a-Muslim over this.
UPDATE, 7:45PM MST: Army denies that the shooter is dead.
Authorities said immediately after the shootings that they had killed the suspected shooter, but later in the evening they recanted and said that he was alive and in stable condition at a hospital, watched by a guard.Good. Now they can hang him.
"His death is not imminent," said Lt. Gen. Bob Cone at Fort Hood. He offered little explanation for the mistake, other than to say there was confusion at the hospital.
UPDATE, 7:51PM MST:
Retired Army Col. Terry Lee told Fox News that he worked with Hasan, who had hoped Obama would pull troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq.Another shattered Hope-n-Changer. Didn't he listen to the speeches where Obama said that the Afghanistan war was the necessary one? And that he was going to close Gitmo?
Hasan was single with no children. He was born in Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech University....So he went to VT, scene of the worst rampage shooting in U.S. history, and goes on a rampage himself in Killeen, TX where the Luby's massacre occurred. Too weird.
