KILLEEN, Texas (KXAN) - Twelve are confirmed dead and 31 are wounded during shootings at Ft. Hood post in Killeen, Texas Thursday at 1:30 p.m. A civilian Ft. Hood police officer is among those killed. Emergency sirens rang out twice, warning soldiers to stay in their homes for safety.

A Ft. Hood spokesperson said one shooter is dead, who was killed by local police. The shooter was identified as Major Malik Nadal Hasan. There were at least two shooters. Police are currently questioning two suspects, who were apprehended at the Soldier Readiness Processing Center. One of the apprehended suspects is a ranking major in the Army. All the shooters were wearing uniforms because they were U.S. soldiers. The main shooter had two handguns. As a general policy, no one is allowed to have guns on the post, according to Lt. General Bob Cone with Ft. Hood.

The shootings took place inside the Howze Theater and at the Soldiers Readiness Processing Center - which used to be an sports-dome complex. To fully understand the location of these buildings, look at this map. Ft. Hood is the largest military post in the world, with at least 40,000 soldiers.

Ft. Hood is on lockdown currently. Units at the post have been ordered to account for all personnel. Both school districts near the post - Temple ISD and Belton ISD - are on soft lockdown also.

"No children located at Ft. Hood schools are being released to parents," said Leslie Gilmore, public information officer with Killeen ISD. "Students who would normally be transported from an off-post school to Ft. Hood are being held on their off-post campuses."

At 3:50 p.m., 500 armed soldiers were sweeping the area, to make sure everyone is safe. Ft. Hood officials are requesting assistance from the FBI to look into the background of the soldiers to see if we can find out anything.

A Ft. Hood spokesperson said one shooter is dead, who was killed by local police. There were at least two shooters. Police are currently questioning two suspects, who were apprehended at the Soldier Readiness Processing Center. One of the apprehended suspects is a ranking major in the Army. All the shooters were wearing uniforms because they were U.S. soldiers. The main shooter had two handguns. As a general policy, no one is allowed to have guns on the post, according to Lt. General Robert Cone with Ft. Hood.

According to an inside source, one soldier felt it necessary to call his kids and parents just in case "he doesn't come home" during the shooting. The same source said "bullets [were] flying everywhere."

"We are watching this terrible tragedy unfold," said Colonel William Meehan at Camp Mabry in Austin, Texas. "Our hearts and sympathies are with the soldiers and their families at Fort Hood."

Scott & White Memorial Hospital received several gunshot victims from Fort Hood. All patients are reported to be adults. At 4:23 p.m., Seton Medical Center in Round Rock, Texas said they had three patients en route who they believed were suffering from gunshot wounds. The hospital said they are in "urgent need for blood donations" in response to the wounded. "Please come to Scott & White Blood Donor Center and donate blood as soon as possible, we are located in Room 115 next the McLane Dining Room in the main hospital. We are open today until at least 7 p.m. and you can contact us at (254) 724-4376 if you need any assistance on determining your eligibility to donate. "

"We are stunned and we are saddened," said Gonda Moncada, a Sergeant with Camp Mabry.

Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison released a statement on the shootings:   "I am shocked and saddened by today’s outburst of violence at Fort Hood that has cost seven of our brave service members their lives and has gravely injured others. My heart goes out to their loved ones. Our dedicated military personnel have sacrificed so much in service to our country, and it sickens me that the men and women of Fort Hood have been subjected to this senseless, random violence. I know all Americans share this concern for the soldiers and their families who are affected by this tragedy," said Sen. Hutchison.

Later on, CNN interviewed Hutchison about the incident.

"[Ft. Hood] is a sprawling facility," said Hutchison. "It's huge and it is a major training base. It's a wonderful base and they have beautiful subdivisions. In fact, they've been in the leadership for best housing for families. They have nine schools. I know they're taking care of these families right now because they have such a great facility to do that. This family will surround these people and do everything possible to ease their pain. It's a tough situation."

When asked what the soldiers were doing in the processing center, Hutchison said "I'm told that they were filling out paper processing to go to Iraq or Afghanistan."

Barbara Star, CNN's Pentagon anchor, was heard saying the situation is "very, very troubling."

Senator Leticia Van de Putte, who is chair of the Texas Senate Committee on eteran Affairs and Military Installations released a statement regarding the shootings:

"My heart breaks for the soldiers and families who lost their lives and loved ones today at Ft. Hood. To return from the horrors of war, only to find that the nightmare is not over is heart-wrenching. My thoughts and prayers are with those families who lost their loved ones and the soldiers who were injured. As Veterans' Day approaches we should all be especially mindful of the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces."

Prairie View A&M University planned a "March for Peace" at 6 p.m. CST near the university's memorial fountain in response to the shootings. Prairie View is approximately three-and-a-half hours southeast of Killeen.

Army: 12 die in dual shootings at Fort Hood, Texas
  By JAY ROOT and ANNE GEARAN, Associated Press Writers Jay Root And Anne Gearan, Associated Press Writers   – 4 mins ago

FORT HOOD, Texas – A soldier opened fire at a U.S. Army base in Fort Hood, Texas on Thursday, unleashing a stream of gunfire that left 12 people dead and 31 wounded. Authorities killed the gunman, and apprehended two other soldiers suspected in the attack.

The shooting began around 1:30 p.m., Lt. Gen. Bob Cone said at a news conference. He said all the casualties took place at the base's Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers who are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening.

"It's a terrible tragedy. It's stunning," Cone said.

Little was known about the three soldiers suspected of taking part in the attack. The soldier used two handguns, Cone said. It was not clear if the gunman had stopped to reload.

A graduation ceremony for soldiers who finished college courses while deployed was going on in an auditorium at the Readiness Center at the time of the shooting, said Sgt. Rebekah Lampam, a Fort Hood spokeswoman.
Greg Schanepp, U.S. Rep. John Carter's regional director in Texas, was representing Carter at the graduation, said John Stone, a spokesman for Carter, whose district includes the Army post.

Schanepp was at the ceremony when a soldier who had been shot in the back came running toward him and alerted him of the shooting, Stone said. The soldier told Schanepp not to go in the direction of the shooter, he said. Stone said he believes Schanepp was in the theater.

The base was locked down after the shootings. The wounded were dispersed among hospitals in central Texas, Cone said.

In Washington, President Barack Obama called the shooting "a horrific outburst of violence." He said it's a tragedy to lose a soldier overseas and even more horrifying when they come under fire at an Army base on American soil.

"We will make sure that we get answers to every single question about this horrible incident," the commander in chief said. "We are going to stay on this."

Covering 339 square miles, Fort Hood is the largest active duty armored post in the United States. Home to about 52,000 troops as of earlier this year, the sprawling base is located halfway between Austin and Waco.

Around the country, some bases stepped up security precautions, but no others were locked down.

Fort Hood officially opened on Sept. 18, 1942, and was named in honor of Gen. John Bell Hood. It has been continuously used for armored training and is charged with maintaining readiness for combat missions.
AP National Security Writer Anne Gearan and Associated Press writers Lolita C. Baldor and Devlin Barrett in Washington, D.C., and Associated Press Writer Jay Root in Fort Worth, Associated Press Writers Linda Stewart Ball, Anabelle Garay and Andre Coe in Dallas contributed to this report.

Forth Hood mass shootings: 3 soldiers kill 11; One gunman, Major Malik Nadal Hasan, shot dead

Three U.S. soldiers went on a chilling rampage at the sprawling Fort Hood Army Base in Texas on Thursday, killing 12 people and wounding 31, officials said.

The motive for the bloodbath was unknown.

At least one gunman opened fire with two handguns just after 2:30 p.m. at the Soldier Readiness Center, where troops prepare for deployment, the Army said.

He was shot dead by military police. Several news outlets identified him as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.

Two other suspects were in custody, said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander.

"It's a terrible tragedy. It's stunning," he said.

President Obama called it a "horrific outburst of violence," stressing that the victims were those who volunteered to protect the nations.

"It's difficult enough when we lose these brave Americans in battles overseas. It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an Army base on American soil," Obama said.

When the shooting began, emergency sirens blared across the massive base and officials warned the population of nearly 34,000 to take cover as they hunted for the gunmen.

The base - the largest military installation in the world - was locked down and the public address system crackled with calls for blood donors.

Two hours later, the hunt appeared to be wrapped up.

The carnage began inside the Soldier Readiness Center, and there were unconfirmed reports of a second shooting at a nearby theater where a graduation ceremony was scheduled.

Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson said many of the victims were collecting their final deployment papers.
The shooters were in military uniform, witnesses said.

All available EMS units in and around Killeen, Texas, were urgently requested to respond to a "mass casualty event" at the base.

Greg Schannep, an aide to Rep. John Carter (R-Texas), told the Austin American Statesman that he was heading for a graduation ceremony on the base when a soldier in a blood-spattered uniform ran by and said someone was shooting.

MSNBC reported a woman and a child were among the victims.

Cone said a civilian police officer was killed.

FBI agents were assisting the Army's Criminal Investigation Command, which was leading the probe.

Fort Hood is in central Texas, about halfway between Austin and Waco.

Most soldiers there have been through multiple deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Suicides and combat stress have been major issues there.

On Sept. 8, 2008, a soldier scheduled to be discharged shot another soldier, then killer himself.

12 Dead, 31 Wounded in Shooting at Fort Hood in Texas

Thursday, November 05, 2009
 A shooting rampage Thursday afternoon at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas killed 11 and wounded 31 before the gunman was killed and two suspects taken into custody.

All three of the people believed to have carried out the shooting were soldiers, Lt. General Bob Cone told reporters Thursday evening, though the motive remains unclear.

AP cites an unnamed source saying the gunman was Major Malik Nadal Hasan, though authorities have not publicly identified him.

Cone said witnesses reported seeing more than one shooter, but that couldn't be confirmed. The primary shooter used two handguns, he said.

The shooting took place 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the post's Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers undergo medical screening before being deployed or after returning from overseas.

"We have a terrible, tragic situation here," said Cone. "Soldiers, family members and the civilians that work here are absolutely devastated."

Cone said the injuries "vary significantly" among the victims wounded in the shooting. The victims include one civilian police officer.
President Obama called the shooting a "horrific outburst of violence" on members of the nation's armed forces. "It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an army base on American soil."

He said he doesn't yet know all the details but promised the government would get "answers to every single question."

Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said the shooting was a terrible tragedy for all of the military families affected.

The base and area schools were on lockdown after the mass shooting, and all those on the Army post were asked to gather for a head count.

FORT HOOD, Texas -- A soldier opened fire at a U.S. Army post in Fort Hood, Texas on Thursday, unleashing a stream of gunfire that left 12 people dead and 31 wounded. Authorities killed the gunman, and apprehended two other soldiers suspected in the attack.

The area is no stranger to the tragedy of mass shootings. In 1991, a man entered a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen and killed 24 people during a 15-minute rampage.

Fort Hood shooting suspect is Army Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan
By Lara Jakes, AP
November 5th, 2009

AP source: Fort Hood shooting suspect Army major

WASHINGTON — Officials say a shooting suspect at Fort Hood has been identified as Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan, who they say was an Army mental health professional.

A law enforcement official said Hasan, believed to be in his late 30s, was killed after opening fire at the base. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

A defense official speaking on condition of anonymity says Hasan was a mental health professional — an Army psychologist or psychiatrist.

It was not known whether he was treating people at the base.

Officials says it was not clear what Hasan’s religion was, but investigators are trying to determine if Hasan was his birth name or if he may have changed his name and converted to the Islamic faith at some point.

Urgent Need for Blood Donations
