KCEN-TV in Central Texas is reporting unconfirmed reports that multiple people have been injured Wednesday in a shooting at Fort Hood.
A U.S. Army official at Fort Hood confirms that a shooting has occurred at the base, though the number of people injured and the severity of their injuries remains a mystery.
KCEN reports at least one person has been transported to an area hospital in an unknown condition and that possibly three others have been injured.
The shooting is believed to have taken place at the Medical Brigade Building. KCEN-TV reports there are also reports of victims at the Battle Simulation Center.
The shooter is believed to be at-large and the base is on lock down. Just after 5 p.m., the base tweeted that all personnel are being asked to shelter in place, close doors and stay away from windows.
