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.
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.
