FORT HOOD (April 2, 2014) At least one person is dead after a shooting late Wednesday afternoon on Fort Hood, a post spokesman confirmed.

Others were injured in the shooting, but the spokesman didn’t say how many.

A source told News 10 that as many as 15 wounded victims were taken to hospitals and that some were being treated at Scott & White Hospital in Temple.

Another source, however, said two people were injured.

A Scott & White spokesman confirmed the hospital was receiving victims, but didn’t know how many.

That source told News 10 there were two gunmen and that one was in custody, but there was no immediate confirmation.

The gunman is still at large and the spokesman said the incident is being treated as an active-shooter situation.

“There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported. Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time,” the post said in a brief statement issued just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Warning sirens sounded late Wednesday afternoon at Fort Hood because of the incident.

A man who said he was a witness told News 10 that about 20 shots were fired in a post motor pool in the area of Motor Pool Road and Tank Destroyer Boulevard.

He said at least three people were hit.

He said the three victims were taken to a hospital.

The post was on lockdown as a result of the shooting, which occurred at around 4:25 p.m.

People on post were told to stay indoors.

A message that scrolled across the top of the post’s website said, “Shelter in place immediately. This is not a test.”

The 1st Calvary Division, which is based at Fort Hood, sent a Twitter alert telling people on base to close doors and stay away from windows.

Texas A&M Central Texas in Killeen canceled evening and night classes Wednesday at Fort Hood and at its Fairway building because of the situation on post.

First responders from surrounding communities were headed to the post.

Bell County sheriff’s deputies and Department Public Safety troopers were also responding, sheriff’s Lt. Donnie Adams said.

FBI agents were also reported to be en route, but the FBI did not immediately confirm that.

Media were being directed to the post's Visitor's Center.

@Lustig Andrei,
I believe the death total is four and that there are perhaps eleven injured. 34 year old Ivan Lopez is the shooter's name.

A gunman killed three people before shooting himself to death in an attack Wednesday at Fort Hood, the same base that was the scene of the worst attack on a domestic U.S. military installation five years ago, officials said.
