Four dead after gunman opens fire at Ft. Hood

Posted: Updated:

Fort Hood, TX (NBC) - Military officials confirm four are dead, including the gunman, after an enlisted soldier opened fire.

As many as eleven were injured in the second shooting attack to happen at Fort Hood in five years.

Warnings sounded from the public address system across the base at Fort Hood, alerting all personnel to shelter where they were.

Shots rang out at the motor pool just after four in the afternoon.

Reportedly, an altercation ended in gun fire.

Officials say the gunman then took his own life.

Victims were rushed to hospitals by ambulances and Medevac choppers, some of whom remain in critical condition.

Wednesday's shooting was scarily reminiscent of November 5, 2009, when Major Nidal Hassan opened fire killing 13 and injuring at least 30.
