At least seven people are dead and twelve others wounded in a series of shootings in a barracks at Fort Hood, Texas, reports say.

One gunman is reported in custody while two remain at large, according to officials. The FBI is on route to the area. Officials say they don't if the shooter or shooters are civilians or soldiers.

Fort Hood is a United States Army post located outside of Killeen, Texas. It's the largest US military base in the world and home to thousands of soldiers.

All buildings, including schools in Fort Hood are on lockdown and swat teams have reportedly surrounded one building on the base with a shooter inside.

President Obama has been briefed on the situation, according to the White House.

Let's hope that they're not "Iranian". Fortunately, I've got a packet of potassium iodide
capsules previously purchased in case of, eh, fallout.

Should these clowns turn out to be Glen Beck/Birther fans, then the consequences
should be interesting, to put it mildly. It's hard to imagine why those guys would attack
a military base though.

Its most likely a usual American workplace shooting that just happens to be an army workplace.

Looks like more than that. 2 confirmed shooters, they think another one is loose.

Some commentators stateside starting to emphasise that this is first major incident since 9/11.

I'll be charitable to the GOP and give them 7 days before an elected rep says "This would never have happened under Bush"

Edit: 9 dead, one person in custody.

Two gunmen in military uniforms shot and killed as many as nine people and wounded as many as 20 at Fort Hood in Texas on Thursday, officials said.

One of the shooters has been apprehended, Fort Hood spokesman Sgt. Maj. Jamie Posten told CNN.

"At this point we're looking for the other shooter," Posten said. Asked for a description, he said, "we're trying to develop that information."

The shooters were wearing military uniforms, but it was unclear whether they were soldiers, said U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas

Terrorist Attack?

Why is it that US Soldiers can kill people anywhere in the world, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc..... and they are never described as terrorists. But anyone who kills a US Soldier is automatically a terrorist.

That is a despicable statement and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Fox News - that bastion of free thinking and non-agenda driven news is now reporting the FBI says that there is no terrorist involvement in the attack.

Sounds like a couple of soldiers "gone postal".
