BREAKING: Fort Hood shooter confirmed dead after reportedly killing 1, injuring 15
A shooting has been reported at the US military base at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, where several people have been injured and one person has been reported dead.
At least one person died after the shooting. Multiple outlets confirmed that one shooter had been “neutralized,” although Shimon Prokupecz of CNN reported that the gunman was dead of a self-inflicted wound.
There had been multiple reports of a second shooter, though a US military official confirmed to KCEN-TV that the shooter who had been eliminated as a threat was acting alone.
As many as eight people have reportedly been hospitalized.
Fort Hood’s official Twitter page warned all people in the area to remain sheltered in place, an indication that the shooter is still active.MORE: http://rt.com/usa/fort-hood-shooting-lockdown-969/
