Breaking: Fort Hood Shooter Sentenced to Death

Military jury sentences Army Psychiatrist, Major Nadal Hasan to death for the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood.

The former US Army Major Nidal Hasan has been sentenced to death for the Fort Hood shooting rampage that killed 13 people in 2009

nidal-hasanNidal Malik Hasan was sentenced to death Wednesday for killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in a 2009 shooting spree at Fort Hood, Tex., the worst mass murder at a military installation in U.S. history.

Dressed in army fatigues, Hasan, who turns 43 next month, listened as the death penalty was handed down by a panel of 13 senior military officers in a unanimous decision. If even a single panel member had objected, Hasan would instead have been sentenced to life in prison.

The jury deliberated for a little more than two hours.

Hasan was previously found guilty on all 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 of attempted premeditated murder after opening fire Nov. 5, 2009, at Fort Hood’s Soldier Readiness Processing Center, where troops were preparing for deployments to Afghanistan.
