    This doesn't have the makings of a shooting by members of the Army.

    This was not necessarily military doing this shooting...it could possibly be a domestic militant group or even foreign terrorists...it's hart to tell at this point.

    If only all those guns were registered!

    But this is rather sad, we'll have to wait for more information to come out before anything can be said for sure. But hopefully they can find everyone available and that we don't use this incident to freak out.

    Report that there were only 2 and that both are captured.

    And that comment speaks to our well founded trust in the discipline of our military members.

    This sounds like more than just a lunatic mass-shooter, it sounds a lot more deliberate than that.

    Re: 7 dead as many as a dozen hurt in Fort Hood shootings

    Confirmed 9 dead, there are 500 people sweeping through the base to try to deal with the other situation (if there is one). , one still supposedly on the loose. They don't seem to be clear about what is happening

    MSNBC just now: According to an administration source named Roger Cressey (?), suspect in custody is a 40 year old male who is an army major who has, (and I quote) "an arabic sounding name."

    Please don't jump to any conclusions


    edit: News conference now

    1 shooter entered a processing facility, went off, was killed. 12 dead, 31 wounded. He was a soldier. Since then, they have apprehended 2 more soldiers who are suspects. they were tracked to an adjacent facility and captured. Doesn't sound like anything else is happening now. primary shooter only had two handguns, there were no high powered rifles involved.
