Fort Hood locked down after shooting; four killed, gunman dead Bigfoot hunter admits he lied


The Fort Hood military installation in Texas is locked down after a shooting that left at least four people dead and injured an unknown number, according to authorities.

Four people were killed, according to government officials. It’s unclear at this moment if the four dead includes the shooter, who officials have confirmed was killed, but that number is believed to include the shooter.

Fort Hood, which remained locked down at 8 p.m., reported that there were multiple injuries after the shooting. However, Fort Hood officials said the number of people injured had not been confirmed.

There are believed to be 14 people injured in the shooting, according to law enforcement officials.

David Ross, a Fort Hood official, said the site is fully locked down and “completely sealed” as they search every building.

“There is a confirmed shooting that occurred,” Ross said. “We’re still trying to identify what we have.”

A Fort Hood soldier briefed on the shooting said it reportedly took place at or near a medical facility on post.

Fort Hood’s Web site is urging people to shelter in place immediately, something followed up by this tweet.

The base was the site of a shooting in 2009 that ultimately killed 13 people and wounded another 32, the worst mass murder at a military installation in U.S. history. Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death last year for the shooting after being found guilty of premeditated and attempted premeditated murder.

Speaking in Chicago, President Obama said his administration was following the shooting closely.

“I want to just assure all of us we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened,” he said, according to the pool report. “We’re heartbroken something like this might have happened again.”
