O/T I remember the shooting at Luby's in Killeen. It happened while I was driving the truck, and I was in Texas, but I was up on I-20 when I heard about it. I had delivered in Temple, and another driver and myself had gone to Luby's there in Kileen the day before. I was in such shock that such a thing had happend, I had to pull off on the shoulder of the road in Dallas and laid my head on the steering wheel. I just bawled. And the more I heard about it, the worse it got. It was a horrible thing that happened, and a sick reason why it occurred.   

This is just as horrible if not worse. They are going to get us from within.

Army: 12 die, 31 wounded in Fort Hood shooting
  By JAY ROOT and ANNE GEARAN, Associated Press Writers Jay Root And Anne Gearan, Associated Press Writers   – 1 min 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 what appears to be the worst mass shooting at a U.S. military base.

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.

A law enforcement official identified the shooting suspect as Army Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan. The 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.

The official says investigators are trying to determine if Hasan was his birth name, or if he changed his name and converted to Islam at some point in his life.

Cone said the soldier used two handguns in the attack. 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.

The shootings on the Texas military base stirred memories of other recent mass shootings in the United States, including 13 dead at a New York immigrant center in March, 10 killed during a gunman's rampage across Alabama in March and 32 killed in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history at Virginia Tech in 2007.

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

"The bottom line for us is that we are increasing security at our gates because the threat hasn't yet been defined, and we're reminding our Marines to be vigilant in their areas of responsibility," said Capt. Rob Dolan, public affairs officer for the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Ariz.

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.

About a mile from Fort Hood's east gate, Cynthia Thomas, director of Under the Hood Cafe, a local coffee shop and nonprofit military support center, has been calling soldiers and friends on the post to make sure they're OK.

"It's chaotic," Thomas said, as a SWAT team just drove by. "They're just saying that they're under attack they don't know what's going on. ... The phones are jammed. Everybody is calling family members and friends. Soldiers are running around with M-16s."

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.

Red Cross Web site allows people to check on loved ones at post

By American-Statesman staff | Thursday, November 5, 2009, 04:19 PM

The Waco Chapter of the American Red Cross is establishing a communications program so people around the country can check on the safety of individual personnel at Fort Hood.

“The Safe & Well program allows those involved in an emergency to register online at www.safeandwell.org so their loved ones can find them and check on their safety,” the agency said in a statement.

The Waco chapter has mental health workers on standby and is ready to deploy upon Station request, it said.

Military calls Fort Hood shooting ‘isolated’ case
Officials unaware of increased security measures at other U.S. bases
msnbc.com staff and news service reports
updated 19 minutes ago

Military officials on Thursday called the mass shooting at a Texas Army base an "isolated and tragic case" and said they were unaware of increased security measures at other military bases.

"This is an isolated and tragic case and we're obviously in the process of obtaining more information as the events unfold," said Lt. Col. Eric Butterbaugh, spokesman from the Department of Defense.

Twelve people were killed and at least 31 others were injured when a soldier opened fire at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas, military officials said. One gunman was shot to death, and two other soldiers were in custody, Lt. Gen. Robert W. Cone, commanding general of the Army’s III Corps, told reporters.
Cone said that the shootings could have been a criminal matter rather than a terrorism-related attack and that there was no intelligence to suggest a plot against Fort Hood.

During a press conference in Texas, Gov. Rick Perry said there was no further threat to residents living near the base and encouraged the community to support of troops. He also declined to speak on added security issues at the base.

Fort Hood, one of the largest military complexes in the world, remained on lockdown, as were schools and businesses in the area. Dozens of agents of the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives converged on the post, federal officials said.

Suspect had been upset about upcoming deployment, senate aide says

By Ben Wear and wire reports | Thursday, November 5, 2009, 05:17 PM

Jeff Sadosky, a spokesman for U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, said the senator had been told that Malik Nadal Hasan, who has been identified as a the shooting suspect at Fort Hood, was upset about his upcoming deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan.

FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS:

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.

Temple hospital has nine patients on site with gunshot wounds

By AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF | Thursday, November 5, 2009, 05:31 PM

Scott and White Memorial Hospital in Temple has nine patients on site and 11 more en route to the hospital, said Dr. Glen Couchman, the associate system chief medical officer. Four are in the operating room and five are being evaluated, he said.

Couchman said all of the patients they’ve seen have gunshot wounds, but he doesn’t have info on their respective conditions. “We get patients like this, but not usually all at once,” he said.

The hospital, a level-one trauma center, is coordinating with the hospital on the post and are assisting with transportation and have called in extra staff.

Metroplex Adventist Hospital received seven of the victims, the hospital said in a statement. One was later pronounced dead, and two, one an EMS paramedic, are in surgery, the statement said.

Four have been stabilized, two were transferred to Scott & White Memorial Hospital in Temple and two have been transferred to Seton in Round Rock, it said.

All were military personnel.

Scott & White is accepting blood donations in their main facility in Temple.

“We here at Metroplex Adventist Hospital are deeply saddened by this tragedy,” the statement said. “Our hearts and prayers go out to all involved.”
