There's a shooting at U.S. Army base Fort Hood in Texas today. At least 12 dead so far. 31 wounded.

Hasan is not dead and is in stable condition.

Watching a live feed from a Major General down at Hood.

The actually shooting is over. CNN confirms 12 dead, including one dead shooter. 31 injured. Two other soldiers have been arrested as suspects based on eyewitness accounts reporting more than one shooter

We can expect that a few more of the injured will probably die.

Have we got any members down at Ft Hood?

UPDATE: CNN reports all injured are U.S. military members. The shooting occurred at a medical facility where soldiers who are about to deploy or soldiers just returned from deployment are undergoing medical screenings.

I don't think so. HTY is in Hawaii I think, and I'm pretty sure the only other members I have seen post about military service are either in the middle east or in the eastern part of the country.

Regardless, that's terrible to hear. I don't have a TV, so keep me updated if possible. Any mention of a motive or cause?

No known motive or cause as of yet, nor suspect names released. Weapons used were two handguns.

At least two injured in 'Very serious condition'. All injured are adults; those targeted were soldiers just about to deploy getting final deployment paperwork.

Sleeper Cell? Another issue for the media to scramble up, and get a panic response from authorities. Gun Control issues should be the lead on this one, even though it is Texas, and on a military base, the cry will be more gun control. Then will come the 'profiling' debate of an Muslim US Army Officer, the accused? shooter, how dare the tie be made between this act and muslim extremists. The potential for a media field day grow every minute this sprew of 'facts' continues, without proper checking/verifying.

Thus far, mainstram media (I've been monitoring CNN, and to a lesser extent FOX and ABC) have been diligent about sticking to information officially released.

Obviously Free Republic, Jewish International Defense Force, et. al. are playing up the possible Muslim convert angle. Let's not jump down any throats until it's called for. The media's doing a good job of fact checking thus far.

According to news reports within an hour of the shooting it wasn't a terrorist act.
 
Impressive they were able to figure that out before the shooters name was even released...
 
 
Cone did not speculate about a motive, but the Army released a statement saying it did not believe the shootings were an act of political terrorism.
 
They tremble at my name...

How is it that I am the first to note that surely this would have been averted if only there had been somebody there with a CCW?!
