WASHINGTON (AP) - The Army now says the military psychiatrist
suspected in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood is not dead as
previously announced.
The development comes as the Army tries to determine what led to
the massacre that left 12 people dead and 31 others wounded.
The Army identifies the shooting suspect as Maj. Nidal Malik
Hasan. Law enforcement officials say he'd come to the attention of
authorities six months ago because of Internet postings that
discussed suicide bombings and other threats.
The postings appeared to have been made by Hasan, who was
wounded during the shootings at the Army post that killed 12
soldiers and wounded at least 30 others. A Fort Hood spokesman had
earlier said Hasan was killed.
The officials say they're still trying to confirm that Hasan was
the author of the Internet postings. They say an official
investigation was not opened.
