(FORT HOOD, Texas) — A shooting occurred Wednesday at Fort Hood in Texas, federal authorities told ABC News, and FBI and ATF agents are responding to the scene.
A defense official said there is an “active shooter” on the Army post and said there have been “some casualties.”
A Twitter account for the army base announced “shelter in place” has been ordered for all personnel. The post released a statement saying that “injuries” have been reported, but no further details were available.
President Obama has been informed of the shooting, a White House spokesperson said.
Fort Hood was the site of a mass shooting in 2009, when Maj. Nidal Hasan killed 13 people.
