Another shooting on Ft. Hood

Yes, that Ft. Hood.

Details are scant. Multiple people injured. For now, shooter is still at large, and the base is locked down.

I’ll write more as I know more.

UPDATE: NBC reports there may be two shooters. One down. One at large. I don’t want to report every single detail in the beginning, because initial reports are notoriously wrong, but that’s what we know so far.

ANOTHER UPDATE: they’re now saying there’s only one shooter. Dead.

UPDATE THE THIRD: Fox reporting there’s still a lockdown. Active crime scene. Four dead, including the shooter. Military officials say there is still one shooter, but the base is being searched just in case.

UPDATE CONTINUES: News sources identify the shooter as SPC Ivan Lopez. Lopez was 34 or 36 years old.

ANOTHER ONE: RUMINT says he was part of the Warrior Transition Program, and that he was a truck driver. They say it started as an argument.

MORE: News conference at from hospital; injuries include gunshot wounds to chest, neck, extremities.  Four there, and two more en route.

    2. Rumor has it that Booker/Hassan is in the mental ward of a KC hospital.
