Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged shooter in the Fort Hood massacre, will face an additional 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder, Army officials said Wednesday.

Hasan, a U.S. Army psychiatrist, already has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder for the 13 people who were fatally shot at the Army post on November 5.

The 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder are related to 30 soldiers and two civilians injured in the shooting, according to a Fort Hood news release.

Additional charges are possible, the statement said.
