Shooting at Fort Hood – 7 dead

Details are rather scarce at this time.  CNN reports

“At least seven people are dead and between 12 and 15 wounded in shootings at Fort Hood in Texas on Thursday”, senior Pentagon official told CNN.

At least one person is “neutralized” in connection with the incident, and a second is “cornered,” retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore told CNN, citing “unofficial, unconfirmed reports” from two sources.”

Please pray for our soldiers, they have enough problems to deal with as it is being shot at overseas.

UPDATE: The slain gunman was identified as Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, 39. The unit was preparing to go to Iraq.  It is my hope that the military will be smart enough to delay deployment of this unit; to allow for the unit to recuperate from the loss and shock.
