At least 3 still critical after Fort Hood attack

Posted: Updated:

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - At least three military personnel remain in critical condition after a gunman at Fort Hood killed three people and wounded 16 others before committing suicide.

A spokesman for Scott & White Memorial Hospital in Temple on Thursday said three patients are critical and six are serious. Deke Jones says eight males and one female were admitted following Wednesday afternoon's gunfire.

Fort Hood officials did not immediately provide details on the other seven people who were shot or otherwise hurt during the rampage blamed on an Iraq War veteran being treated for mental illness.

Fort Hood chaplains have set up family counseling centers. The Red Cross opened a shelter at the Killeen Community Center in the hours after the attack but nobody spent the night and the shelter has now closed.
