Shooting at Fort Hood UPDATE

Posted By on Thu, Nov 5, 2009 at 2:49 PM

Grim news from MSNBC:

At least seven people are dead and 12 20 31 wounded in a shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the base's public affairs office told NBC News on Thursday.

A lot of unknowns at this point.  Not known whether victims are soldiers or civilians.  One gunman is in custody.  One, maybe two others are on the loose.  Fort Hood is an army base located in between Austin and Waco, TX. 

The Austin American Statesman has set up this Twitter site to keep up with all Fort Hood-related info.  Or just use the #fthood tag.

UPDATE: MSNBC is now reporting that three soldiers opened fire.  One was killed and the other two are now in custody.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
