    HOUSTON: A member of Congress said that around 4 people were killed and 14 were injured after the gunman opened fire at Fort Hood on Wednesday, inciting a huge police response and shutting down the sprawling Army base.

    14 Injured in Fort Hood Shooting
    As per the release details from the officials at Fort Hood the gunman seems to be one among the dead. Reports of the shooting sent a number of federal, state and local law enforcement officials rushing to the base in Killeen, Tex., similar to what was done in Nov, 2009. In San Antonio, the spokeswoman for the FBI said, “Agents in that office were part of the response on Wednesday.”

    The chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, Republican of Texas, Representative Michael McCaul, said that around 4 people including the gunman died in the attack and he further added that the suspect is been identified by the system as Ivan Lopez though the motive is still need to be cleared. The suspect was wearing an Army uniform though it is to be detected whether he was on active duty that time.

    In the words of President Obama in Chicago, “We are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened. We’re heartbroken something like this might have happened again.” He describes this act of shooting as fluid situation that Pentagon and White House officials were diligently following.

    Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said, “That many questions remained but that their focus was on supporting the victims and their families. This is a community that has faced and overcome crises with resilience and strength.”

    In an interview with KCEN, an NBC affiliate a man who would only identify himself as Tyler described the incidence as, “It was like if you went into a room and turned on the lights — all the bugs just scattered”. He further said that he saw children, women and men were being escorted out of the building at gun point. The incidence was unfolded around 4:30pm at a medical support building on the base.
