United States Army officials has reported that there has been a shooting at the Fort Hood military base in Fort Hood, Texas.

According to Fox News on April 2, the base confirmed the shootings in a brief statement that was posted online. The written statement also said that emergency crews were on the scene of the shooting and that further details were still unknown.

According to Fox News, the Bell County Sheriff's Office dispatched deputies and state troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety to the scene after receiving reports about an "active shooter," said Bell County Sheriff's Lt. Donnie Adams.

FBI spokesman Michelle Lee told the Associated Press that agents were also headed out to the base.

This is the second shooting in five years at the base, where in 2009, thirteen people were killed and more than 30 were wounded in what was described as the deadliest attack on a domestic military base in U.S. history.
