The attorney for a man suspected in a deadly shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, says he's heading to San Antonio to meet his client.
Retired Col. John P. Galligan says he was retained by Maj. Nidal
Malik Hasan's family on Monday. He says he has asked investigators
not to question Hasan and doesn't know if he's been medically
cleared to talk.
Hasan is accused of opening fire on the Army post on Thursday, killing 13 people and wounding 29 before civilian police shot him. He remains at a U.S. Army hospital in San Antonio, where a spokesman said Monday he is now able to talk.
Authorities won't say when charges would be filed or if Hasan would face military justice.
Galligan questions whether Hasan could get a fair trial anywhere, given the widespread attention to the case.
