FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A soldier wounded in the Fort Hood
shootings took the stand in military court today to describe how
the gunman had two weapons -- and to identify the suspect.

Testimony continued in the hearing to determine if Maj. Nidal
Hasan should stand trial over the Nov. 5. attacks. Hasan is charged
with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted
premeditated murder.

Pfc. Najee Hull, who was shot in the knee and back, today
described how the gunman had been carrying two weapons - one "with
a red laser on it" and one with a green laser.

A prosecutor asked Hull if the gunman was in the courtroom.
Hull looked to where Hasan sat, just a dozen feet away, and
asked if he could remove his hat.

Defense attorney John Galligan objected but Col. James L. Pohl,
a military judge presiding over the hearing as its investigating
officer, overruled the objection.

Hull stood up, looked at Hasan and said "That's him."
