UPDATED:

Twelve people were killed and 31 injured during a shooting rampage Thursday at Fort Hood Army base in central Texas, according to the base's commanding officer.

Lt. General Robert W. Cone said police shot dead the shooter, who was a soldier. He said two other suspects, who are also soldiers, are in custody, but he said they were not "confirmed shooters."

Gen. Cone said during a televised press conference outside that base, that all those killed and injured were soldiers. He said the shootings took place about 1:30 p.m. at a soldier readiness center.

Gen. Cone said the shooter used two handguns.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said President Obama is being kept updated as details about the shooting emerge.

Ft. Hood, in Killeen, Texas, is the largest U.S. military base in the world home to roughly 34,000 people on 160,000 acres. The base is used to send and bring back soldiers in the war of terror.

The victims were a mix of civilian and military, but no children were involved, officials said.

The FBI ruled out terrorism.

"The slain gunman was identified as Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan, according to a law enforcement source. The source believes he is 39 or 40 years old.

Ten of the other dead also were soldiers, while the remaining one was a civilian police officer who was working as a contractor on the base, Cone said.

Two of the injured were in "very serious" condition, Fort Hood spokesman Christopher Hogue said."

Now comes the concerted effort by our government to tell us this wasn't a terrorist act.

Fox has interviewed someone who worked with him at Ft. Hood (Terry Lee) who says he was a harsh critic of U.S. foreign policy who said Muslims had a right to stand up and fight against the aggressor in Iraq and Afghanistan i.e., us.

The Associated Press is reporting that authorities were already investigating him for postings on a blog that equated suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.
