Shooting at Fort Hood, 3 Dead, 14 Injured


The information isn’t definitive yet. All that we know for sure is that there is an active shooter.

The video below is from a live stream news report. – KCEN HD – Waco, Temple, and Killeen

A few days ago we had reports of a search for a Fort Hood type attack. That was probably unrelated, but there was an actual shooting now at Fort Hood. The base is in lockdown and injuries have been reported.

The post spokesman has confirmed one dead. Reportedly 8 people have been taken to the hospital.

“Around 20 rounds were shot outside but then the shooter went in to the medical brigade building, according to a soldier on post at Fort Hood,” USA Today reports.

A man who said he was a witness told News 10 that about 20 shots were fired in a post motor pool in the area of Motor Pool Road and Tank Destroyer Boulevard.

The gunman, identified as 34-year-old soldier Ivan Lopez, died of a self-inflicted wound, the Justice Department said.

    I’m sure this is merely another case of “workplace violence” and has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism.
    Yeah, right…

      The Libs probably hope this guy was a Christian or a Jew.

      It could very well be workplace violence this time. One happened in Iraq where a solider received a low rating and killed 1 or 2 people. We’ll see. Of course Obama will obfuscate if this doesn’t go his way.

      However Nidal Hassan’s act was not work place violence. It was terrorism.

        I see the perpetrators name & rank Spc. Ivan Lopez.

        At 1st blush it looks like an unhappy young person. Do not know if being a minority played into the crime

        Speaking of Hassan, I wonder why that scum is still breathing? He was sentenced to death on 8. 28. 2013.

          Obama foot dragging?

    Something is MASSIVELY wrong with your Army when the largest unit in the U.S. has to call 911 to save them from ONE lone gunman. Terribly wrong. Why aren’t all soldiers armed when on duty? Why are soldiers not allowed to carry personal sidearms when off-duty? Why do we have an emasculated Disarmed Forces?

      Because of Bill Clinton.

      • Gee

        Nope – Richard Nixon did it. Clinton just didn’t change it

  • iluvisrael

    The mainstream media will probably refer to this guy as a white hispanic.

  • UCSPanther

    I would wait until we have a more full picture of what happened before we speculate.

    • Wolfthatknowsall

      I agree …

  • Ban Liberals

    All because a liberal (Bill Bubba Clinton) decreed that our soldiers
    CANNOT CARRY OR POSSESS GUNS even while on duty on a military

    And the weasels running the show, like Humpty Dumpty Dempsey, more
    concerned with their damned careers than our troops’ lives, allow scum
    like Obama to perpetuate the show.

    Not that RINO Jorge Boosh did anything to countermand Clinton’s order…

    • A Z

      Clinton did it because it was his inclination to do so.

      George Bush may have kept the ban in place,because the generals asked him to do so, he didn’t know about it (I did not know about until Fort Hood), he might have had a lot of other things on his plate or some other reason.

      Some political and policy issues just suck the oxygen from the atmosphere during an administration like they do a news cycle. I am not saying it is right. I am just saying it happens. Things that sucked the oxygen from other concerns was 9/11, the War, the antiwar protests, immigration, supreme court nominees, other nominees, any election cycle, TARP, education reform (No Child Left behind : not saying that I support that particular fix(?)), Medicare Part D (not saying I support that either), etc.

    • Gee

      President Nixon disarmed the military.

  • Gee

    My thoughts and prayers go to the families of the victims of this act. My niece is an XO of a company at Fort Hood. As luck would have it her unit was on the other side of the base.

  • SoCalMike

    Politicians once again addressed a non issue by passing a law diarming the military on domestic bases. This stupidity became fatally obvious when Major Hassan went off in 2009 but did the feds learn anything??
    Do they ever?? Not when other people pay with their money or lives.

    I continue to feel like if you’re suicidal, and you want to go shooting, why don’t you just shoot yourself right off the bat instead of shooting a bunch of other people beforehand? This kind of mass killing followed by suicide just mystifies me. Why not just cut to the suicide and eliminate the shooting of the middle men?
