Fort Hood Shooting Report Released

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Nine months after 13 people were killed in shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, the Defense Department has released a report saying the military needs to be more aware of signs of potential workplace violence.

The department's final report on the shootings last November at the Army post was released Friday. It also recommends expanding military installations' emergency response capabilities and making sure supervisors have access to soldiers' personnel records.

Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan (nih-DAHL' hah-SAHN') has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the shootings.

In October, a military judge will hear witness testimony to determine whether the case against Hasan should go to trial.
