    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.

    WASHINGTON: 25 Years jail has been declared on Monday to the man who opened fire on the White House having an assault rifle with him after informing his friend’s about being in a mission from God to kill Barack Obama, the President.
    25 Years Jail for the Man who Fired Shots at White House

    The man named Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez drove more than 3,200 kilometres (2,000 miles) to the capital of US from his hometown which was in Idaho in order to carry out his November 2011 attack.

    Believing on the statement of prosecutors, the man, after telling his friend that he was “on a mission from God to take out” Obama, fired at least eight rounds at the White House. Fortunately the president and his family were on living at the White House at the time and there was no harm caused to anyone in the incident.
    This 23 years old, pleaded guilty in the month of September to weapons and terror charges. Additional to his terms in jail, he was ordered to pay the compensation for the destruction done to the White House by his attack. The amount of which is nearly $94,000.

    Ronald Machen, the US Attorney said, “This man drove cross-country to launch an assault rifle attack on the White House”. He further said, “He was motivated by hatred for the president and the desire to start a revolution against the federal government. This 25-year prison sentence demonstrates that anyone who comes to the nation’s capital planning to use violence should expect to spend decades behind bars.”

    The man (Ortega-Hernandez) was arrested by the cops in less than a week after his attack in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Justice Department revealed that Ortega-Hernandez reiterated anti-government statements beginning in 2010, describing Obama “the anti-Christ,” and “the devil” while later describing himself as a “cold-hearted warrior of God.”
