FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - 1 of the soldiers killed during the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood cried out for her unborn child as she was fatally shot.
Pvt. Francheska Velez was among 13 people killed when a gunman opened fire inside a crowded medical building at the sprawling Central Texas Army post in 2009. Maj. Nidal Hasan is being court-martialed in the massacre.
Pathologist Col. AbuBakr Marzouk (ah-boo-BAH'-kur mahr-ZOOK') says Velez suffered a fatal wound to her heart and right lung.
Witnesses testified earlier to hearing the 21-year-old Chicago woman cry out "My baby! My baby!" during the shootings.
If convicted, Hasan could face the death penalty.
