Deadly Shooting Rampage at Fort Hood: R.I.P. to the Fallen November 6, 2009

Posted by bigworldcentral in Breaking News, USA News.


A military doctor who reportedly feared an approaching war classification is in custody as the sole suspect in a shooting spree at the Army’s Fort Hood that left 12 dead and at least 30 injured. The news that the suspect, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, was still breathing and in durable condition, came as an expeditious reversal of early reports that the gunman was a member the dead. Two other soldiers who were taken into custody as hypothetical suspects were let loose.

Hasan was managing other soldiers at Darnall Army Medical Center on Fort Hood after being transfered in July from Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where he had worked for six years before recently receiving an unsatisfactory review.

This tragic event took place 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the post’s Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers undergo medical screening before being arranged or after reverting from overseas.

President Barack Obama called the shooting a “horrific outburst of violence” on members of the nation’s armed forces. “It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an army base on American soil,” he said. If you would like to learn more about what happened, click here.

Very, very sad. Twelve people who were helping protect us and our country are now in spirit. R.I.P., freedom fighters.
