WASHINGTON (AP)- Authorities say Fort Hood shooting Nidal Malik Hasan remains in a coma but is expected to live.
A federal law enforcement official said investigators have not been able to talk to Hasan since the deadly rampage that left 13 people dead and injured 30 others at the sprawling Army post on Thursday.
The initial investigation shows that Hasan allegedly used only one gun during the attack - a 5.7-caliber semiautomatic pistol.
Army officials said Hasan also was carrying another handgun. But the law enforcement official said there's nothing so far to indicate the second weapon was fired. The law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
Locally, Carter Blood Care is putting the call out for O-negitive blood. They provide blood to the hospital on the Fort Hood post in Killeen. Donations are accepted at any Carter Blood Care Center in Tyler located at 815 Baxter Street and are open till 8pm Thursday. Longview location is open until 7pm.
