    At least seven people are dead and twelve others wounded in a series of shootings in a barracks at Fort Hood, Texas, reports say.

    One gunman is reported in custody while two remain at large, according to officials. The FBI is on route to the area. Officials say they don't if the shooter or shooters are civilians or soldiers.

    Fort Hood is a United States Army post located outside of Killeen, Texas. It's the largest US military base in the world and home to thousands of soldiers.

    All buildings, including schools in Fort Hood are on lockdown and swat teams have reportedly surrounded one building on the base with a shooter inside.

    President Obama has been briefed on the situation, according to the White House.

    Let's hope that they're not "Iranian". Fortunately, I've got a packet of potassium iodide
    capsules previously purchased in case of, eh, fallout.

    Should these clowns turn out to be Glen Beck/Birther fans, then the consequences
    should be interesting, to put it mildly. It's hard to imagine why those guys would attack
    a military base though.

    Its most likely a usual American workplace shooting that just happens to be an army workplace.

    Looks like more than that. 2 confirmed shooters, they think another one is loose.
