Suspected Fort Hood shooter dead; situation ongoing
CNN ^ | Wednesday, April 2, 2014 | Dana Ford

Posted on 04/02/2014 4:49:47 PM PDT by Star Traveler

(CNN) -- A suspected shooter at Fort Hood, Texas, is dead, but the situation is still considered an active scene, multiple U.S. officials told CNN on Wednesday.

"There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported. Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time," the Army post said in an evening statement.

Fort Hood's official Twitter feed asked that all personnel on post shelter in place. Sirens were going off.

President Barack Obama has been briefed on the incident and will continue to receive updates, according to a White House press pool report. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel also was monitoring the situation.

Deke Jones, with Scott & White Memorial Hospital, told CNN his facility was receiving patients.

"I don't have a number," he said.

Sheriff's deputies from Bell County and state troopers are assisting by securing the area around the post, according to Bell County Sheriff's Lt. Donnie Adams.

Authorities in the town of Killeen, just outside the gates, are also standing by to help, said Mayor Dan Corbin.

"It is unclear what is going on right now," Corbin said. "We have been in touch with appropriate personnel, we are standing by with our police and ambulances, if needed. We are very concerned. Fort Hood is always there for us and we want to be there for them."

He continued: "They are used to dealing with combat situations, and I'm sure they are very capable of handling this."

Cant wait until they show us the Gadson flag and bible he was reported to be carrying around.

Soon as I heard that he was shouting “Jesus is Lord” while shooting, I knew he had to be one of them.

Pentagon sources tell CBS News that the Fort Hood shooter is a soldier and that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. CBS News reports that the shooting stemmed from a soldier dispute.

Here comes the gun control argument again.

Of course not realizing if soldiers are supposed to carry weapons as it is their job, this never would have happened.

Why are the soldiers disarmed? Because of a CLINTON!!! The name alone should be thrown in the crapper and the folks with that name who are directly responsible for so MUCH misery, deception and evil deserve the depths of hell.

But who am I to judge?

He’s Mohammed and there should have been a BOLO since he was recently discharged and apparently, nobody was shadowing him. This was predicted on March 31 but no name was given until today. He has three part name but Mohammed first name.

The President has been briefed.
What good will that do,he doesn’t care.With the possible exception of using the incident to promote more gun control.

You haven’t heard his Muslim name yet. And we probably never will, although one reporter (just before the Army told them they couldn’t interview witnesses) said he appeared to be “an extremist,” the polite way of saying “jihadi.”

A rhetorical question.

I know the Dims will use it as another diversionary tactic to sway the attention from the latest Obeyme fiasco, so what we all think of the tragedy will count as nothing when his godlessness is next playing golf.
