7 killed at Ft Hood shooting

#1

Post by Kythas » Thu Nov 05, 2009 3:20 pm

Seven people are dead and 12 people wounded in a shooting at Ft. Hood today. News is scarce and still coming in and this is the only thing I've seen online about it.

Radio reports one person in custody and one person still at large. No idea as to identities of shooters.

May our prayers be with the families of those killed and with the wounded.

My God, this is terrible. My thoughts and prayers also go out to the people who were murdered and the families.

This is so new, it is still unfolding. Fort Hood is on lockdown as are the schools in the area:

News is reporting a third shooter was involved, so it appears there are two shooters still on the loose.

Witnesses said all three shooters were wearing military uniforms.

Sheppard Smith on FoxNews is speaking with a Killeen official, who is saying that a THIRD shooter has begun shooting at another location on the post, near the PX.

Not sure. It's possible that the second shooter that escaped the first shooting location is not being incorrectly reported as a third shooter in a different location.

News conference now says 12 dead and 31 injured. The first shooter was killed by MP's. The other two suspect shooters are in custody, and all were soldiers...no civilians.
