Shooting At Fort Hood

Fort_Hood_TX

The largest Military installation in the world is on lockdown…Fox news is reporting at least two shooters, another one possibly on the loose.

One shooter is in custody, one is surrounded, and another one was reportedly still shooting as of a few minutes ago. The only description of the shooters is that they’re wearing fatigues.

NBC reports 7  dead, 12 injured.

No word yet on whether the shooters are military or civilian.

It’s hard to imagine that three shooters would all be soldiers. This seems like a coordinated attack.

UPDATE:

As many as 30 wounded.

Local schools are also in lockdown.

On Fox News, General Bob Scales US Army Ret. says the shooters used M-16 rifles…could be a small group or disgruntled soldiers or terrorist attack.

I’ve heard conflicting reports on what the I.D. requirements are to get into Fort Hood. The General says it’s very lax security.

The man in custody is said to be a 40 year old, and so far that’s all that’s known about him. Still no word on whether he’s military or civilian.

No more word on the shooter who was surrounded.

UPDATE:

Shooters were soldiers!

Man in custody possibly an officer.

Fox Analyst: The FBI will be looking into who these folks were…possibly moles, or sleepers.

New death toll:

12 dead 31 wounded.

Houston Chronicle:

The Army says that one of the shooters is dead, and two others have been captured. One civilian police officer is among the dead.

Via AoSHQ, ABC reports:

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

Um!

MORE:

A convert to Islam?

At some point Shep Smith on Fox News will catch up….he’s reluctant to report the Major’s name.

UPDATE:

Was Hasan a lone gunman?

The two other suspects have reportedly been released.

    Without sounding racist…I am not surprised about the name of the Major. My question is….why is he in charge of anything in out Army? Better yet…why is he on base?

    This is insane. We have our worst attack on the United States of America from Islamic religious wackos, and now we have an attack on our military at Ft. Hood by some army major with an Islamic name…and the media are afraid to to report his name because it…might be offensive. God Almighty we are stupid country. The media in this country are little pansies and they make me sick.

    The religion of peace strikes again. I’m not sure what its going to take for people to wake up and realize that we are at war with a death cult that is determined to kill us and has been trying to since before this nation was founded.

    Leaving Iraq and Afghanistan is going to end this. It will only end when Islam is defeated.

  10. Michael Says:

    Wait for it. We’re going to hear about some psychobabble mental infirmity suffered by the shooter(s). Nothing to do with Islam.

    Nothing to see here. Move along now.

  11. JackStraw Says:

    Leaving Iraq and Afghanistan is NOT going to end this

    About 10 pm est, the army says the killer coward is alive.

  13. Nick in Gettysburg Says:

    With all due respect to Betty, you know there are some American born Muslims in our armed forces who have actually been awarded medals. One person does something like this (which is sickening by the way) and all the sudden you want everybody with a Muslim sounding name to not be in our Army. Listen, for every whackjob like this guy, I bet there are at least 3 good soldiers of Islamic descent in our fine forces.

  14. rufus black Says:

    throw out the muslims army and country

  15. Nick in Gettysburg Says:

    Good lord Rufus, with a name like that, that reply really doesn’t surprise me at all. Have fun at racist party brother.
