Default 7 Dead, 12 injured at Fort Hood

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33678801...ime_and_courts

At least seven people are dead and 12 wounded in a shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the base's public affairs office told NBC News on Thursday.

The official would not give his name nor additional details. It was unknown whether victims are soldiers or civilians. One gunman was reportedly in custody and another was on the loose, NBC News said. A third shooter may be involved, according to NBC News affiliate KCEN.

KCEN in Waco reported that the second suspect may be holed up in a building on the post.

The base was reportedly on lockdown. Two nearby school districts were also being locked down.

Fort Hood is adjacent to Killeen, and 60 miles northeast of Austin. The sprawling complex is home to at least 4,929 active duty officers and 45,414 enlisted. Civilian employees total nearly 9,000.

The base has seen other violence in recent years. In September 2008, a 21-year-old 1st Cavalry Division soldier shot his lieutenant to death and then killed himself. Spc. Jody Michael Wirawan of Eagle River, Alaska. shot himself to death after shooting 1st Lt. Robert Bartlett Fletcher, 24, of Jensen Beach, Fla. to death.
Prayers out to the families of the dead
Prayers to the wounded

Thoughts go out to everyone and their families there.

I have a friend who's husband was stationed in Ft. Hood and they just relocated to South Carolina about 2 weeks ago...she's pretty shook up about it since she has a lot of friends (military and otherwise) in that area.

Are the gunmen homegrown or Hajis?

I just heard this tragic news on KDKA. 12 people confirmed dead thus far. More details coming in. How truly sad.

If there are three people involved, it's probably a little more than someone just going off the deep end.
