Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan was charged Thursday with 13 counts of premeditated murder in last week’s Fort Hood mass shootings.
Hasan, 39, is suspected of killing 13 of his comrades Nov. 5 when he opened fire at a soldier processing center at the Army base in Killeen, Texas. He was charged in the military’s legal system, making him eligible for the death penalty.
The Army Criminal Investigation Command formally announced the charges against Hasan at Fort Hood Wednesday afternoon.
“We are aggressively following every possible lead,” said Chris Grey with the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command, adding that additional charges are possible.
Why isn’t he charged with 14 counts of murder since one of his victims was pregnant and due to deliver in May? The un-born child should count as a separate person.
