FBI agents give extensive details about Fort Hood shooting evidence

Posted:
FORT HOOD -

The prosecution caused an hour and half delay in the trial of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan after they submitted more than 200 pieces of evidence on Tuesday.

Prosecutors gathered more than 4,000 crime scene photos over the past three years, but had no intention of presenting most of them due to their graphic nature.

The prosecution called five experts to testify after they submitted their evidence.

Special Agent Susan Martin, a photo logger, testified that her team immediately retrieved the fire escape plan to draw a sketch of the scene when they arrived on November 5, 2009. They used this sketch to number each room to effectively mark evidence.

She explained where bodies and shell casings were located inside the building.

Martin said her team retrieved 146 shell casings and 6 magazines from the scene.

Another FBI agent explained how the shell casings and bullet holes showed the shooter initially started firing from in front of a receptionist desk.

Special Agent Brett Mills found 270 bullet holes and impacts during his investigation, but said this does not mean the shooter fired 270 shots. 

Special Agent Mills used an animation of the SRP building to show how several bullets bounced off desks, cubicles and walls before landing. He said many of the bullets traveled eastward, and passed the cubicle area.

Autopsy specialist Robert Stabley testified about the autopsy he conducted on Ltc. Juanita Warman.

Stabley said Warman died from a gunshot wound to the back after a bullet traveled through her kidney, colon, and the left lobe of her lung. She also suffered from two other gunshot wounds that contributed to blood loss.

Autopsy testimony from Michael Cahill and Pfc. Kham See Xiong is scheduled to begin Wednesday.
