Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, is reportedly on lockdown following a shooting:

One person is believed to have been shot, and authorities are in pursuit of a suspect:

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected.

We will continue to monitor this situation and update with developments.



Authorities have reportedly found and taken the suspect into custody:

  • Michael Anderson (WB)

    Since it’s US Army run it means it is a gun-free zone. Apparently designating some place as gun-free is the best way to get a crazed gunman to attack it.

      Spot on! The law-abiding, not the criminals, are the ones who obey the ban on guns. Instead of making areas safe for victims, the bans make it safe for the criminal.

      Heh…US Army post is gun-free. How comforting.

      • BAW

        It I’m not mistaken, Clinton made U.S. military facilities “gun free” and I think Bush was wrong not to change that when he declared we were “at war.”

      • Clete Torres

        This policy is the epitome of Democrat stupidity. Military members – trained in the use of firearms – are prohibited from carrying them on base. Guess the Fort Hood and Sam Houston shooters didn’t get the memo.

      You can just walk onto a US Army base with a gun?

      • Michael Anderson (WB)

        It’s not the same as an army base, but it is an army run facility.

    Update from KENS-5 reporter:

    The shooting was part of an apparent domestic dispute between the two, who were at one time romantically involved, Javier Salazar, SAPD spokesman, told CBS affiliate KENS-TV.

    Salazar said the woman was serving on active duty, but the man is not in the military.

    Further update from the Chron; shooter is retired military.

    What’s the over/under that the suspect isn’t white, trailer trash and gun owning, NRA member, John Smith?
