UPDATE 6:50 p.m. ET Confirmed there are eight injured and there were two shooters, one is in custody, the other remains at large.
2nd UPDATE: 6:56 p.m. ET Confirmed that one person died as the result of this shooting attack.
3rd UPDATE: 7:00 p.m. A group of men, women and children were escorted out of a building at gunpoint, all of the people have their hands in the air. It is believed this group was removed from the building as part of protocol and not because they are believed to include the remaining shooter who is at large.
4th UPDATE: 7:54 p.m. There had been reports that the shooter is dead, but right now they are reporting that it is UNCONFIRMED that the shooter is dead
5TH UPDATE: 8:00 p.m. Four people are dead, including the shooter. The shooter has been identified as 34-year old Ivan Lopez. Lopez died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Four people are in critical condition.
6th UPDATE: 8:25 p.m. Lockdown at Fort Hood has been lifted.

Everyone at the Ft. Hood Army Base has been ordered to “shelter in place,” the base is on lock-down, as sometime late this afternoon a shooter appeared at the base and began shooting at a medical support building.

There are as yet unconfirmed reports of multiple people being shot and at least one person was injured, and one person possibly has died. This is unconfirmed.

Witnesses claimed that a white male in a gray Toyota was being sought, and that he had a 45 gun, but that is unconfirmed.

The shooter is still at large.

Yesterday there were reports that the FBI was seeking an ex-recruit who was potentially planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihadi-style attack against U.S. soldier.”

According to Fox News, the person being sought was identified as Booker and had allegedly told friends of his ‘intention to commit jihad.’ Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.

This story will be updated.

  1. So let me get this straight: the U.S. Army learned ofMr. Booker's (or Mr. Hassan's) plan, decided that he shouldn't be accepted into the Army because he was planning to commit jihad (by which I assume everyone means "struggle with self to become a better person") and then the Army just lost interest? Wouldn't it have made sense to assign one or two people to pay attention to where this lunatic was going and what he was doing?

  2. welcome to the American intifada!! folks!!! it was just a matter of time!!

  3. I heard he shot himself dead.

  4. Lani Lowell says:

    Muslim suspect at large. this is where the M us lies have taken over the police force right.

  5. Muslim Name!!! Hum

  6. Very sad, indeed;maybe second time is the charm. Put security forces at all bldg. entrances; search all cars & persons of interest.

  7. They said he is dead. Plus his name was Mexican.

  8. The news said he killed himself and he wasnt Muslim. Just messed up in the head. Our soldiers are comming home almost as messed up as the POW’s from Vietnam. The government is throwing drugs at the soldiers to coop and thats not working. Domestic violence and suicide rates are so high its epidemic form. This soldier snapped and took lives he probley didnt in his right mind would have. But if he isnt dead he soon will be. We ask the brave people to go kill other people overseas and they get body parts body parts blown off or suffer brain damage or become mentally unstable. We call them hero’s but our government does just enough when it comes to care and then forgets them this is unacceptable. Why not take some of those billions of dollars to blow things up and kill people and use it to take care of those that sacrifice so much. More backward priorities we have as a nation. May the Father bless them and may they and their families find peace they are all being made into victims but deserve so much more than they recieve.
