Fort Hood Suspect Arrested at Nearby Golf Course, Was With Hasan
A surviving Fort Hood suspect was reported to have been caught at a nearby golf course according to a senior officer who was playing golf yesterday evening near Fort Hood in Texas.
The name has not been released at this time but this person is believed to be one of the two surviving suspects of the shooting and was reported to be with Malik Nadal Hasan.
The officer who was on the golf course said that military police arrived at the facility and told him and others to clear the course and about 30 to 40 cars carrying the police arrived. The officer said he ducked in to a nearby house for cover.
He reports that he saw a soldier in battle-dress uniform with his hands in the air being arrested by the police. He was ordered to lie on the ground and open his uniform to make sure he wasn't carrying any explosives.
He said an MP told him that authorities considered the man to be a suspect in the shootings after having overheard the man say he was with the shooter.
The golf course is located about 2.5 miles from the army base.
