2 possible shooters in Fort Hood shooting

FORT HOOD, Texas - As many as eight people were injured in a shooting at Fort Hood, Texas - the same base where a military psychiatrist killed 13 people 4½ years ago - military officials told NBC News.

Officials said one person was in custody and that a second possible shooter was being sought.

Few details were immediately available, but a supervisor at Scott & White Memorial Hospital told NBC News that the hospital was "setting up a command center."

The base confirmed in a statement that "injuries are reported" and that "emergency crews are on the scene."

Bell County and state public safety deputies were securing the perimeter of the area, a senior local law enforcement source said.

Waco police told the public to avoid the fort, saying on Twitter that "there is an on-going active shooter."
