FORT HOOD, Texas — Breaking news is that a U.S. law enforcement official says the suspected gunman at the Fort Hood Army base, in Texas, is now believed to be deceased.

KTVU says that Fort Hood confirmed today in a statement that the shooting happened on the base on Wednesday evening. The statement reported that, as of now, emergency crews were on the scene and that further details were not yet available.

"Another incident at Fort Hood? I wonder why it happened there." says San Francisco resident, Katie Adler. "There was a mass shooting there in 2009 already. I believe that 13 people died then.

According to KTVU:

"The official says reports circulating within the Justice Department indicate the shooter has died of what appears to be a self-inflicted wound. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is still ongoing."
