(CNN) -- A suspected shooter at Fort Hood, Texas, is dead, but the situation is still considered an active scene, multiple U.S. officials told CNN on Wednesday.
"There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported. Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time," the Army post said in an evening statement.
Fort Hood's official Twitter feed asked that all personnel on post shelter in place. Sirens were going off.
President Barack Obama has been briefed on the incident and will continue to receive updates, according to a White House press pool report. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel also was monitoring the situation.
Deke Jones, with Scott & White Memorial Hospital, told CNN his facility was receiving patients.
"I don't have a number," he said.
Sheriff's deputies from Bell County and state troopers are assisting by securing the area around the post, according to Bell County Sheriff's Lt. Donnie Adams.
Authorities in the town of Killeen, just outside the gates, are also standing by to help, said Mayor Dan Corbin.
"It is unclear what is going on right now," Corbin said. "We have been in touch with appropriate personnel, we are standing by with our police and ambulances, if needed. We are very concerned. Fort Hood is always there for us and we want to be there for them."
He continued: "They are used to dealing with combat situations, and I'm sure they are very capable of handling this."

Not terrorism. Unless the perp is a non-Muslim. Then terrorism.
If the NSA had not been so busy sifting through all the kitteh email and puppy texts of Joe Six Pack, you know what?
THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED.
A victim of workplace violence?
Cant wait until they show us the Gadson flag and bible he was reported to be carrying around.
Soon as I heard that he was shouting “Jesus is Lord” while shooting, I knew he had to be one of them.
Fox now reports from law enforcement on scene:
Total Four dead including shooter.
Still on going.
Fox news just said 4 dead, counting the shooter.
Reaction to a Youtube video?
Are we talking about a new Fort Hood Commander already?
Just got here...dear Jesus...not again!
GOOD THING THEY PREVENTED THIS TRAGEDY, EH..?
"He who gives up liberty in hopes of security...."
YOU KNOW THE REST.
Gee, I hope the president does something quick to prevent the families to get any compensation they are entitled to.
Nothing official but a news release coming. DOJ released but the Army has nothing official yet.
Ivan Lopez id’d as shooter
After Major Hassan and now this why do they still not allow soldiers on base to carry sidearms? This is insanity!!
Can they check my messages and tell me what kind of bread I was supposed to get ... I seemed to have lost that message. Thanks guys ... If you can help me out here ... :-) ...
Ivan Lopez idd as shooter
KCEN just reported that.
What is your source as it is much faster.
Yep ... it is presumed that if a person is deceased ... they’re dead ... :-) ...
I haven’t heard a word about that.
Pentagon sources tell CBS News that the Fort Hood shooter is a soldier and that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. CBS News reports that the shooting stemmed from a soldier dispute.
Tea Party terrorist no doubt.
Here comes the gun control argument again.
Of course not realizing if soldiers are supposed to carry weapons as it is their job, this never would have happened.
Why are the soldiers disarmed? Because of a CLINTON!!! The name alone should be thrown in the crapper and the folks with that name who are directly responsible for so MUCH misery, deception and evil deserve the depths of hell.
But who am I to judge?
Never let a good crisis go to waste. This will take attention away form 0bamacare.
FBI, US military in hunt for one-time recruit planning ‘Fort Hood-style Jihad’
He’s Mohammed and there should have been a BOLO since he was recently discharged and apparently, nobody was shadowing him. This was predicted on March 31 but no name was given until today. He has three part name but Mohammed first name.
First graders at NBC writing headlines now?
The President has been briefed.
What good will that do,he doesn’t care.With the possible exception of using the incident to promote more gun control.
He had not reported for basic training yet.
Shooter id’d as Mohammed Abdullah somethin’. Why does a guy discharged from the military have two different names?
If you want it to be. You can be sure that dimoRATS will take full advantage of it. I got to check out Alex Jones.
“Sources told CBS News identified the shoot as 34-year-old soldier Ivan Lopez. A source said the violence apparently stemmed from some sort of soldier dispute.”
You’re very confused. Pay better attention.
He was apprehended the other day and is under confinement in a mental institute,
Ivan Lopez doesn’t sound too Muslim to me ... :-) ...
I saw it reported elsewhere that he was Ivan Lopez ...
How many threads do we need?
You haven’t heard his Muslim name yet. And we probably never will, although one reporter (just before the Army told them they couldn’t interview witnesses) said he appeared to be “an extremist,” the polite way of saying “jihadi.”
A rhetorical question.
I know the Dims will use it as another diversionary tactic to sway the attention from the latest Obeyme fiasco, so what we all think of the tragedy will count as nothing when his godlessness is next playing golf.
CNN is is reporting that Obama has been briefed briefly in a briefing. The situation is fluidly fluid flowing. Breaking...where is flight MH370?
If it is a hispanic or black or muslim who did it, we won’t hear much from the liberals.
Flight MH370 is where DB Cooper is now ...
- The shooter is Specialist Ivan Lopez
- Three soldiers are dead as of now
- Oh- some sort of “ALTERCATION”
- Specialist Ivan Lopez is the killer
Another report said it was a dispute between soldiers. The news will start to come out and we’ll get more details soon.
