There are reports of an ongoing active shooter incident on the Fort Hood Army base late Wednesday afternoon, and several injuries have been reported. The shooter or shooters remain at large.

ABC News reports that Bell County Sheriff's Office dispatched deputies and troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety to the nearby Fort Hood, Texas Army base and the base has been ordered to "shelter in place."

The shelter in place order was posted on both the Fort Hood Army base's Twitter feed and Facebook page. The 1st Calvary Division, which is based at Fort Hood, sent a Twitter alert telling people on base to close doors and stay away from windows.

In November, 2009, Army Maj. Nidal Nasan opened fire at the Fort Hood, Texas army base, killing thirteen innocent victims and wounded 32 others. The Fort Hood terrorist attack was the deadliest attack on a domestic military installation in United States history.

The shooter or shooters remain at large at the time of this report. Check back for updates as details unfold.
