    The official would not give his name nor additional details. It was unknown whether victims are soldiers or civilians. One gunman was reportedly in custody and another was on the loose, NBC News said. A third shooter may be involved, according to NBC News affiliate KCEN, which said the person had opened fire on the SWAT team at the base.

    2 confirmed gunmen ... they got one in custody and suspect there is a third at large.

    My first instinct was this is a soldier gone crazy like what happened at Bragg back in the 90's when a soldier set up shop and oped fire on his unit while they were PT'ing but this sounds like something much different.

    I just got home and saw this on the news. I thought it might be a meltdown too. If it was that, why three of them.

    A Potential of (3) Soldiers "Snapping" together or Planning to Attack other Soldiers and or Civilians @ Hood is something that I don't Find very Plausible.
