Contrary to earlier reports, the suspected shooter at Fort Hood, Army Major
Malik Nidal Hasan, 39, is alive and in stable condition. Hasan was a psychiatrist specializing in traumatic stress syndrome who was said to be unhappy about possibly being deployed to Iraq.

Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. in 2007 and additional
training in disaster and preventive psychiatry at Uniformed Services
University Of the Health Sciences F. Edward Herbert School of Medicine,

At least 12 people were killed and 31 wounded in the
shooting at Fort Hood Army Base near Killeen, Texas, when at least one
gunmen opened fire on soldiers who were making their final deployment
preparations. Fort Hood, located near the town of Killeen, is home to about 40,000 US troops.
