FORT HOOD, Texas -- There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported. Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time.
As further details are available, they will be released through FortHoodPressCenter.com.

Shots were fired Wednesday afternoon at Fort Hood, killing at least one person and wounding several others, CBS affiliate KWTX reported.

Warning sirens went off. A spokesman for the base said there was an active shooter situation and all personnel were asked to shelter in place. He could provide no further details.

KWTX said one death had been confirmed and that at least eight other people were injured.

A man who said he was a witness told KWTX that about 20 shots were fired at a post motor pool. The man said he saw a soldier jumping over a fence and running away, but it was not clear whether that solider may have been the shooter.

The post was on lockdown and a spokesman called the situation "serious."

First responders from surrounding communities were headed to the post.

Ford Hood near Killeen was the site of a mass murder on Nov. 5, 2009, when Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, opened fire at a soldier readiness center on the base. He shot 13 people dead and wounded more than 30 others. It was the worst shooting ever to take place on an American military base.
Hasan has been sentenced to death for the rampage.
