At least four people are dead and 14 others were injured after a shooting erupted in Fort Hood, Texas, which may have involved more than one suspect, according to numerous news outlets.
The entire base is currently under lockdown and multiple victims were reported near the Battle Simulation Center on 65th and Warehouse Ave.
CNN reported that a suspected shooter died during the incident.
The FBI and the ATF were on the scene along with military police and local law enforcement.
On Monday, Fox News reported that the FBI sent a tip to multiple law enforcement agencies entitled “Planned Ft. Hood-inspired Jihad against US Soldiers by Army Recruit,” which told them to be on the lookout for a recent Army recruit known as “Booker, also known as Mohammad Abdullah Hassan” who was allegedly planning an “imminent jihad.”
But the news outlet updated the story yesterday stating that he was no longer considered an immediate threat by the FBI.
Ft. Hood was also the scene of a mass shooting on Nov. 5, 2009 where Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others.
