According to numerous sources on April 2, there is at least one active shooter at the Fort Hood army base in Texas. Authorities are advising people to seek shelter. The suspect(s) have not been apprehended at this time.
The Fort Hood military base is in lock-down as authorities are searching for the killer(s). KWTX reported approximately 20 rounds were fired and at least 15 soldiers were allegedly shot, which is not confirmed at this time.
Today’s incident is reminiscent of the Nov. 5, 2009 Fort Hood shooting which left 13 people dead and wounded approximately 30 others. Former Major Nidal Hasan, an army psychiatrist at the time of the massacre, targeted anyone who wore a green uniform. Hasan was found guilty and was given the death sentence last year. He is currently on ‘death row’ in Leavenworth, Kansas.
The 2009 Fort Hood shooting left many confused and in shock. 52 individuals received awards for their heroic actions during the shooting.
Authorities are advising individuals in the Fort Hood area to lock their doors and stay away from windows.
UPDATE: 4/02/2014 - It is being reported the suspect is "down" and four of the eight victims are "seriously wounded."
