FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Fort Hood has ordered everyone at the Texas Army base to "shelter in place."

The order was sent Wednesday on the base's Twitter feed and posted on its Facebook page.

The 1st Calvary Division, which is based at Fort Hood, sent a Twitter alert telling people on base to close doors and stay away from windows.

A spokeswoman for the base declined to comment. A spokesman for the local sheriff's office did not immediately have information on the incident.

A local sheriff's office said that it had heard there was a shooting.
"They got some kind of shooting incident going on. They haven't told us anything. It was on post and being handled by the military. Fort Hood has not asked for any assistance," said Lt. Donnie Adams with the Bell County Sheriff's Office.

Two times on the same base, sounds like a pattern to me.

Is it safe to assume this is a solider or someone else that works on the base? Only saying that because base security is pretty intense.

Good. God, what the hell is wrong with people? What makes somebody think it's okay to randomly take the lives of others?

The base commander is going to have hell to pay.

Our criminal justice system is a joke and criminals know it.

Well i think with situations like these the guy probably was messed up from war, i highly doubt he did it in sound mind. I know it sucks and isnt an excuse but he probably wasnt right in the mind
