Posted: Updated:

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Wounded patients have begun arriving at hospitals in and near Fort Hood after a shooting rampage on the Central Texas Army post.

Defense Department officials say one person was killed and 14 injured in the Wednesday afternoon shooting, and officials at the base said the shooter is believed to be dead.

A Fort Hood statement says the wounded are being taken to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood and other local hospitals nearby.

Officials at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood referred all questions to post officials.

The biggest is Scott and White Hospital in Temple, about 25 miles east of Fort Hood. Hospital spokesman Deke Jones issued a statement saying the hospital has three patients from the shootings, but he provided no conditions.
