The shooter was shot by a female civilian officer but did not die; Major Nidal Malik Hasan – the shooter – is reported out of surgery and is in stable condition.  Military sources indicate that this incident was a single shooter action and, probably, not multiple shooters as first reported.

Lt. Col. Cone said that several units had personnel in the building during the shooting, so the investigation will be covered by several agencies in and outside of the military.
