Army officials say Fort Hood shooting suspect hospitalized in good condition; won’t say why

FORT WORTH, Texas — The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage has been hospitalized for undisclosed reasons, military officials said Monday.

Maj. Nidal Hasan was listed in good condition after being admitted to the Texas Army post’s hospital Saturday, and he should be released within two days, according to a Fort Hood new release. Medical privacy laws prevent the disclosure of information about Hasan’s health or why he’s there, the release said.

Hasan, 42, faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted in the November 2009 attack that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.
