Shooter at Fort Hood Army base in Texas, injuries reported

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A gunman opened fire in the Fort Hood Army base area in central Texas on Wednesday, injuring an unknown number of people, police said, and the base has issued a shelter in place order for all personnel on post.

The base was the scene of a shooting rampage in 2009 where a former Army psychiatrist killed 13 people and wounded 32 others.
