Multiple people have been injured and the search for the gunman is underway after a shooting at Fort Hood Wednesday afternoon.

A U.S. Army official at Fort Hood confirms that a shooting has occurred at the base, though the number of people injured and the severity of their injuries has not been confirmed.
NBC News reports as many as eight people may be injured.
KCEN reports at least one person has been transported to an area hospital in an unknown condition and that possibly three others have been injured.
The shooting is believed to have taken place at the Medical Brigade Building. KCEN-TV reports there are also reports of victims at the Battle Simulation Center.
