FORT HOOD - Seven people have been killed and 12 seriously injured after a shooter opened fire on Fort Hood Thursday afternoon.
Fort Hood officials say one person is in custody.
We've learned an incident has taken place at the sports dome, now known as the soldier readiness area.
The Nolanville Fire Department tells News Channel 25 that they've been asked to bring all available EMS and Rescue personnel.
Darnall Army Community Hospital reports they have received numerous victims. The spokeswoman could not confirm what types of injuries the victims were suffering.
A massive manhunt was under way for the suspect at large, Fox News confirmed. One person was in custody. The New York Post said that there were two shooters at the Army post massacre; other reports said there were three.
The attack apparently happened at Ft. Hood's Soldier Readiness Center. Army officials didn't know whether the victims were civilians or military personnel.
Other media reports said the number of victims remained unclear.
The men were reportedly dressed in Army fatigues, but military officials couldn't confirm that they were Army personnel.
The base and area schools were on lockdown after the mass shooting, and all those on the Army post were asked to gather for a head count.
The FBI was en route to Ft. Hood to provide assistance.
There have been several previous deadly incidents at Ft. Hood, including a shooting of one soldier by another at a party in July; a rape and fatal shooting of an Army medic at her apartment near the post 11 years ago; and the murder-suicide of a lieutenant by a soldier in September 2008.
THis is very terrible. My Step brother was in Ft Hood two years ago.
One has been captured.
One is in a standoff.
One is still shooting.
No report as to who they are: military or civilians.
As if it wasn't bad enough that our soldiers have to be concerned with getting shot at while they're deployed!
There have been shootings in the recent past, too. I really wonder what's going on......
My thoughts go out to those who are injured, and to the families of the dead.
"I pledge allegiance to the war banner of the united states of Totalitaria. And to the Republic, which no longer stands, several bankers, who are now god, indivisible, with Bernanke bucks and credit for all."
We had the thwarted attack at Ft. Dix, NJ a few years ago. Maybe these guys are taking up where the others left off.
that is not good at all. lets hope they're stopped before anyone else is hurt

Fox News is reporting that 30 people have been wounded.
My old man was just leaving Fort Bragg and said her saw on the internet. Thought we would like to see it here.

WASHINGTON – The Army says seven people were killed and 20 wounded in a pair of shootings at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas. An Army spokesman at the Pentagon says the shootings began about 1:30 p.m. Thursday at a personnel and medical processing center at Fort Hood.
The spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Nathan Banks, says two shooters were apparently involved. There is no word yet on who they were, nor on identities of the dead.
Banks says the second incident took place at a theater on the sprawling base.
He says it is too soon to tell whether there is any link to battle stress or repeated deployments. The Army is suffering a record high suicide rate and other signs of stress from fighting two wars.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The U.S. Army has closed its massive Army base at Fort Hood, Texas, amid reports that several people have been shot and killed at the post.
The Web site of the base in central Texas has posted an alert that says, "Effective immediately Fort Hood is closed." The Web site said that units at the base have been ordered to account for all personnel.
The site says, "This is not a Drill. It is an Emergency Situation."
Several television stations in Texas say several people were both killed and wounded in the shooting. Officials at the base and in the nearby town of Killeen, Texas, have not confirmed those accounts.
Fort Hood is located halfway between Austin and Waco.
Wow! Prayers for all involved.
