Multiple people are injured after a shooting at the Fort Hood Army post Wednesday afternoon, officials said, and the post is on lockdown.
As many as eight people may be injured, and there may have been two shooters, NBC News reported. One of those was believed to be “down,” while the second was believed to be at-large, according to NBC News.
Fort Hood confirmed that a shooting occurred at the post, though the number of people injured and the severity of their injuries has not been confirmed.
Just after 5 p.m. local time, the base tweeted that all personnel were being asked to shelter in place, close doors and stay away from windows.
The shooting is believed to have taken place at the Medical Brigade Building. Local NBC affiliate KCEN-TV reported there were also reports of victims at the Battle Simulation Center.
Central Texas College’ campus was evacuated due to the shooting, with all personnel and students asked to leave and all classes canceled.
