    Hopefully, it is an isolated event, not a mass targeting.

    I really wish they would start letting NCOs be armed if they wished.

    Yup- The daily duty uniform for E6 and up should included a holstered M9 and a spare mag. All loaded.

    Another Ft. Hood shooting today!

    Not much news yet but there have been a couple of causalities already.

    Just heard on the news that the shooter is still at large.

    K.C. PD was issued a BOLO for an Army recruit who happens to be a jihadist. The Army recruited him and then discovered he wanted to do another Ft. Hood style killing of American soldiers.

    Good grief.

    We are getting reports of at least one person dead along with several injuries from this shooting. There is at least one patient being transported to the hospital.

    We are also getting reports of victims in the Battle Simulation Center on 65th and Warehouse.

    The suspect is still at large. The shooter was said to be in building 33026 which is the Medical Brigade Building.

    Reports have said that he was driving a gray Toyota, described as a white male in an Army Combat Uniform, and carrying a .45 handgun.

    Here we go again, people reporting stuff with almost no evidence and people will be reporting it as fact. There is no way of knowing these kind of specifics this early. Sure it could be true, but a much greater chance that it is just irresponsible reporting, trying to be the first.

    They identified a potential terrorist attacker yesterday and have been searching for him.

    Looks like they have found him.

    It makes me cringe to hear a military base being ordered to "shelter in place". Some level of officers should be armed.


    shooter now reported dead.

    Yes, Here we go again with the non-news that is in the news.

    I'm sure all of the news agencies are just making it up to get a story.

    Good Lord.

    Not making it up, but they report ANYTHING, so they can be the "first". At one time news agency to try to confirm news before they reported it, now they just throw it out there.

    I'm saddened to hear this breaking news. As a parent of a former Army soldier, it is terrible to have our military folks exposed to shootings on their own base. I hope the perpetrator(s) are quickly apprehended.
