A law enforcement official identified the shooting suspect as Army Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan. The official said Hasan, believed to be in his late 30s, was killed after opening fire at the base. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

Just listened to the new conference from Fort Hood...via Local KFI....the latest ....

The Major is the only shooter and he is alive....

The PR Army man would give no information about the Major...

Ken and John show seemed to be well supplied with info however...

The “Lone Wolf terrorist” is one of our worst national security nightmares. Those terrorists operate each on their own or may form terrorist cells with very few numbers but independent from any known terrorist group and that is why there are very dangerous. It is very hard to catch them.
