    It was a feel-good hero story that for several days gave Americans some comfort after the murder of 13 soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas. But like so many war stories — including the infamous rescue of Private Jessica Lynch during the 2003 invasion of Iraq — the exact details of how last Thursday's mass shooting at Fort Hood was brought to a violent end are growing more murky by the day. Initially it was claimed that a slightly-built female police officer, Sergeant Kimberly "Mighty Mouse" Munley, opened fire on the suspect, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, and kept shooting even after...
  • Fort Hood heroine Kimberly Munley may have missed gunman

    The official version of last week's Fort Hood massacre may have to be revised after it emerged that the shots which brought down the alleged gunman were fired not by a petite policewoman but by her male partner. Sergeant Kimberly Munley was hailed a heroine around the world after officials credited her with bringing down Major Nidal Hasan after he opened fire in a processing centre at the sprawling military base on Texas. But a witness to the shootings, in which 13 people were killed, has told The New York Times that Sergeant Munley was herself shot almost as soon...

    KILLEEN, Tex. — Sgt. Kimberly D. Munley has been applauded as a hero across the nation for shooting down Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan during the bloody rampage at Fort Hood last week. The account of heroism, given by the authorities, attracted the attention of newspapers, the networks and television talk shows. But the story of how the petite police officer and the accused gunman went down in an exchange of gunfire does not agree with the account of an eyewitness who had gone to the base’s processing center, where the shooting occurred, to conduct business before being deployed

    "Hoping to bring an end to the chaos inside the post deployment readiness center, Sgt. Kimberly Munley, an officer with Fort Hood’s Department of Emergency Services, and Senior Sgt. Mark Todd, K-9 Division, DES, moved in to the fight. According to Todd, as soon as officers pulled up to the scene, people were pointing them in the direction of the shooter. Hasan reportedly started firing on Todd and Munley, who took cover behind a vehicle. Munley left her cover to pursue the shooter and Todd followed around the other side of the building, where the major was hiding. When Todd...

    The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor is the highest decoration for bravery performed by public safety officers in the United States, comparable to the military's Medal of Honor.

It is awarded by the President of the United States to public safety officers (police officers, firefighters, et cetera) cited by the Attorney General and recommended by the eleven-member Medal of Valor Review Board. The medal can be awarded posthumously. Before the establishment of the Medal of Valor, there were no Federal awards to specifically acknowledge the bravery performed by public...

    After regaining consciousness the first words of policewoman Kim Munley, who shot the Fort Hood gunman Major Nidal Malik Hasan, were "Did anybody die?" Sergeant Munley, 34, was unconcious after being shot three times by Hasan and was rushed to hospital after she lost so much blood doctors thought she would die. She was shot twice in the left thigh and once in the wrist but still managed to bring Malik down with four shots of her own. Dr Kelly Matlock, who treated Munley in hospital, said: "She opened her eyes and said, 'Did anybody die?' That's what she said."...

    Sgt. Kimberly Munley, 34, a civilian Department of Defense police officer at the base, is credited with stopping the firing rampage of U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan at the Soldier Readiness Center within a few minutes after he launched his attack. Munley, described by neighbor Brooke Beato, as "very petite, with long blonde hair and a strong personality," was credited by base officials with preventing further carnage by aggressively engaging Hasan as he shot at her. She rounded a corner, took aim at Hasan and brought him down, officials said. "It was an amazing and an aggressive performance by this...

    After Sgt. Kimberly Munley stopped the Fort Hood massacre by shooting Major Nidal Malik Hasan several times, she collapsed from her wounds and doctors who treated her were afraid she wouldn't survive. Munley, a 34-year-old former soldier who became a civilian cop on the Fort Hood base, was shot twice in both legs during Thursday's confrontation. Two powerful "cop killer" rounds allegedly fired by Hasan tore through her left thigh, exited and blasted through her right thigh as well. She was also struck in the wrist. Munley, the mother of two girls, was sped to Metroplex Hospital several miles away...

    KILLEEN, Tex. — The police officer who brought down a gunman after he went on a shooting rampage at the Fort Hood Army base here was on the way to have her car repaired when she responded to a police radio report of gunfire at a center where soldiers are processed before being sent overseas, the authorities said Friday.

    A police officer and mother of one was hailed a heroine yesterday after it emerged that she almost single handedly ended the massacre at America’s biggest military base. Kimberly Munley does not look as if she would be much of a match for a heavily armed US soldier on a murderous rampage. But the slightly built 34-year-old civilian officer was first on the scene after Major Nidal Malik Hasan began firing on comrades at Ford Hood in Texas as they prepared to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq. The 39-year-old psychologist killed 13 and left 31 others with serious injuries. On...

    The hero cop who ended the bloody rampage at Fort Hood by pumping four bullets into the crazed gunman even though she was wounded is known for her toughness, friends say. Before relocating to Texas, civilian police Sgt. Kimberly Munley spent about five years as a cop in North Carolina where she forged a reputation as a no-nonsense officer. "I'd like to say I'm surprised, but I'm really not," said close friend Drew Peterson, 27. "She was born and bred to be a police officer. If you were ever to be in a fight, she'd be the first person to...
