Thirteen people are dead and 31 injured after a soldier went on a shooting spree at Fort Hood in Texas. The Army base was locked down for much of the afternoon as authorities tried to determine the series of events that lead the suspected shooter, Army psychiatrist Major Nadal Malik Hasan, to open fire on his colleagues. Hasan was injured after being shot by another soldier.
To help unravel the story, we talk to Olga Peña, managing editor of the Killeen Daily Herald, who has been covering the story. For a soldier's perspective, we speak with Naveed Ali Shah, a public affairs specialist with the U.S. Army who was stationed at Fort Hood from 2008 to 2009, and whose wife and son are still there. Shah is, himself, Muslim; he joined us from Iraq. We also spoke with Andrew Pomerantz, a professor of psychiatry at Dartmouth University, who has worked with veterans with PTSD for 35 years.
