Who is Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan?

by Patrick Tolbert

KILLEEN - The suspected shooter on Fort Hood Thursday was a psychiatrist who was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan, neighbors said.

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was wounded by Fort Hood Police after he allegedly shot 41 soldiers Thursday on Fort Hood.

News Channel 25's Henry Rosoff has learned Hasan was giving all of his furniture along with copies of the Qu' ran to neighbors Thursday morning. One neighbor even told the Associated Press that Hasan offered her $60 to clean his apartment after he "deployed" on Friday.

According to Associated Press reports, Military officials say Hasan was stationed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for six years before being transferred to Fort Hood in July.

The report quoted officials saying Hasan received a poor performance evaluation while at Walter Reed.

Hasan graduated from Virginia Tech University in 1997 with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry. He received his medical degree from the military's Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., in 2001.
