Civilian officer who took down Ft. Hood gunman has military background

KILLEEN, Texas (AP) - A civilian police officer is being praised
for taking down a man suspected of opening fire on fellow soldiers
at Fort Hood when she shot him in the torso.

Police officials say after arriving at the scene of Thursday's
gunfire, Sgt. Kimberly Munley saw the suspect and started firing at
him.

Munley's boss, Chuck Medley, told The Associated Press on Friday that Hasan then spun around and charged at her with a gun in each hand.

Medley says Munley shot the alleged gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik
Hasan, in the upper torso, allowing officers to take him into
custody.

Medley says in the exchange of gunfire, Munley was shot in
the thighs and wrist.

The 34-year-old Munley is from Pennsylvania, used to be in the
Army and is married to a Fort Bragg, N.C. soldier.
