Alleged gunman in Fort Hood shooting spree not dead
Officials with the Army are now saying that the suspect in the Fort Hood shooting, Major Malik Nadal Hasan, of Jordanian decent, is still alive and in stable condition after undergoing surgery.
That's contrary to what was reported by Lieutenant General Bob Cone of the U.S. Army in an afternoon press conference.
The good news, what little of it there is to report, is that the death toll has not risen.
12 people were killed and 31 injured in the afternoon shootings.
Hasan works as a psychiatrist for the army, and was scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan.
