The suspect in Thursday's deadly shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, is in steady condition, the hospital commander at the base said Friday.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a psychiatrist practicing at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, was shot multiple times and was taken into custody, ending the shooting rampage Thursday afternoon, Fort Hood officials said.
The gunman opened fire at a military processing center at Fort Hood, killing one civilian and 12 soldiers, said Col. John Rossi, deputy commanding general at Fort Hood.
Among those killed was 21-year-old Pfc. Michael Pearson of Bolingbrook, Illinois, his family told the Chicago Tribune. Pearson had joined the Army slightly more than a year ago, his mother, Sheryll, told the newspaper.
"He was working for a furniture company and felt like he wasn't going anywhere," his mother was quoted as saying.
