Ft. Hood shooting

Breaking news, subject to change.
Please pray for the soldiers and families in Ft. Hood, in TX. 2 or 3 gunmen in military garb--turns out they were soldiers--came on base and started shooting in the Soldier Readiness Processing Center. According to news I heard on WGN radio, there are at least 12 dead, 31 wounded. One of the shooters is dead, killed by one of the on-post police force. One of the members of the Ft. Hood Civilian Police was killed in the shooting. Two additional suspects are in custody now. The base is on lockdown so it's hard to get any information right now. The Killene school district is on lockdown, but apparently schools have NOT been hit, and they've been locked down so no one can get in or out, either.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
