911 calls reveal chaos at Fort Hood shooting

Posted:
FORT HOOD -

Witnesses continue to show blatant discomfort as they sit on the witness stand and face the accused Fort Hood shooter for the first time since November 5, 2009.

Many witnesses thought the shooting was a initially a drill, even after being shot.

Witness Spc. Joseph Foster told the court he met eyes with the laser on Maj. Nidal Hasan's gun, then felt a sharp pain in his hip. He initially thought he was hit by a paintball.

The prosecution also called two witnesses who made 911 calls.

The first witness, Shemeka Hairston, struggled to listen to the call she made on the day of the shooting.  She cried as she told the court she was hiding under a desk when she witnessed two soldiers get caught in the gunfire.

She said she later checked one soldier's pulse and he was dead.

A second witness, Regina Huesman, also made a 911 call. She saw the shooter and was confused by the hospital badge he wore on his uniform.

Once he began shooting, she called the police. In the background of the call people screamed, "Where is the shooter?"

She recalled the noncommissioned officer in charge yelling for her to come back into the building after everyone thought the shooter left the building.

The prosecution has gotten through most of the personal testimonies. Expert testimony may begin tomorrow.
