Video: Fort Hood massacre aftermath footage

Victims speak out about the incident and their frustrations against the military

By EMS1 Staff

FORT HOOD, Texas — New footage has been released of the moments after the Fort Hood shooting that left 12 soldiers and one civilian dead, and many others wounded.

The graphic video shows several bodies and chairs scattered on the ground surrounded by pools of blood as soldiers rush to each other’s aid just moments after Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a psychiatrist practicing at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, opened fire at a military processing center in November 2009. 

Dozens of victims of the massacre have now filed suit against the military, demanding it reconsider the attack's "workplace violence" designation, and consider it a terroristic attack.


"Basically, they're treating us like I was downtown and I got hit by a car," Shawn Manning, who was shot six times at Fort Hood, told ABC.

The Army has denied any neglect of the Fort Hood victims, citing ignorance:

"If a soldier feels ignored, then we need to know about it on a case by case basis," Secretary of the Army John McHugh told ABC News. "It is not our intent to have two levels of care for people who are wounded by whatever means in uniform."

Hasan is facing life without parole if convicted of the 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. A new judge has stepped in to consider defense requests to spare Hasan of the death penalty.

Steven W. Wilgus Steven W. Wilgus Saturday, February 16, 2013 11:56:29 AM this is purely [if such a term can be used] political. I am ashamed of the Commander in Chief who is dealing with this atrocity in such an apparently cavalier attitude towards the victims. But Benghazi shows the true mettle of this person. Do not expect any real solution with this other than appeasement to the Muslim world... If this was a Christian, he'd receive the death penalty - as he should. 13 dead is certainly enough reason to have it... Oh yes, this is SO political...
