Prosecutors on Tuesday described a 2009
shooting spree at a US military base as a court martial began against
an army psychiatrist, Major Nidal Hasan, who faces 13 counts of
murder in the slayings at Fort Hood, Texas, local media reported.
They described two guns and 420 rounds of ammunition that they said were carried by Hasan into a facility where soldiers were preparing to deploy to Afghanistan and where Hasan allegedly killed 13 and wounded 32, local broadcaster KVUE reported.
Hasan, 42, faces the death penalty if convicted in the slayings on November 5, 2009. He would be the first active-duty US soldier to receive the death penalty since 1961.
