Update: Alleged shooter is identified as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez. 4 are dead and 14 are injured according to latest reports from Fort Hood.
Fox news is reporting this afternoon another shooting has happened at Fort Hood in Texas. The FBI and the Army are seeking a suspect who had allegedly been known to be plotting such a shooting, an ex-Army recruit, who was discharged from the Army as a result of knowledge of the alleged plot.
Fox News reports, “The alert, whose legitimacy was confirmed by military and law enforcement officials, stated that a man identified as Booker had told friends of his "intention to commit jihad." Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.”
The FBI had released an alert that stated:
“On 20 March 2014, the Kansas City Division FBI became aware of an individual named BOOKER aka Muhammad Abdullah Hassan who had publicly stated his intention to commit jihad, bidding farewell to his friends and making comments indicating his jihad was imminent. BOOKER had been recruited by the US Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for Basic Training on 7 April 2014. Kansas City Division Agents interviewed BOOKER on 20 March 2014.”
Law enforcement has stated there are knowledge of others who have expressed a desire to engage in such plots.
The previous shooting, whe Army Maj. Nidal Hasan killed 13 people and injured several more, took place at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009. It is not known if this incident is a copy cat or any way related to that one.
