Four dead, several injured after shooting on Fort Hood

The shooter, identified as a soldier, is reportedly dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The shooting broke out about 4:30 p.m. and killed at least four people, including the gunman, at the military post in Killeen, Texas. As many as 14 people are injured. An all-clear siren sounded on base around 9 p.m. local time, hours after the shooting.


As I post this my wife is still on lock down on post where we
both work, she has been ordered on the ground by the SWAT
team and searched twice and is still waiting in a very long line
to be interviewed.......I work nights and will go in when she
gets home.........

Thanks guy, it's going to take forever to get on post from here

Bill said...

So how's Sharon doing, and how was your trip on post that night and the next?

Hope it all calms down soon Don.

Bill she was pretty traumatized
by it all because it happened
a block away. Then the State Swat
came in M4s and MP5s leveled
on everyone...A bit hard on the
non military but she's a tough
gal she'll be fine.

Surprisingly there are no major
changes going on and off post,
this case was very different from
the last one, so it dealt with
by redoing their mental heath
screening, which needed to be done!

Looks like it is Tim, this was a one
off thing fortuitously, and the good
that can come of it is better PTSD
