FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A pathologist who performed autopsies on two people killed during the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage says one was likely attacked while lying on the ground.
Capt. Edward Reedy testified Wednesday during the military trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who's accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 at the Texas military base.
Reedy says the lone civilian killed in the attack, 62-year-old physician's assistant Michael Grant Cahill, was shot six times. Prosecutors have said Cahill was shot while trying to stop Hasan with a chair.
Reedy says 23-year-old Pfc. Kham Xiong (zhong) was shot three times, including twice in the head. When asked if Xiong was likely standing when he was shot, Reedy said the wounds were "more consistent with lying on the ground."
