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.
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.
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.
The Army says that one of the shooters is dead, and two others have been captured. One civilian police officer is among the dead.
The suspected gunman was identified by ABC News as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.
At some point Shep Smith on Fox News will catch up….he’s reluctant to report the Major’s name.
Was Hasan a lone gunman?
The two other suspects have reportedly been released.
