FORT HOOD, TX — On November 5, 2009, 39-year-old Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people and injured 32 more during a shooting spree at Fort Hood.
A memorial ceremony is being held at 1 p.m. Tuesday and is open to the public. The ceremony is being held at the Fort Hood Memorial Pavilion.
On that Thursday afternoon, Hasan shouted "Allahu Akbar" and then opened fire into a crowd inside a processing center with a semi-automatic pistol. The center was filled with soldiers who were about to be deployed overseas or were receiving medical screenings after returning from deployment.
The shooting lasted 10 minutes before Hasan was shot by civilian police and taken into custody. Hasan was left paralyzed from the waist down.

One week after the shooting, Hasan was charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder.
On December 2, 2009, Hasan was charged with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
He was arraigned on July 20, 2011.
On June 8, 2012, Hasan's hearing was rescheduled after he arrived to court with a beard, which is a violation of military regulations.
A military appeals court halted the murder case indefinitely on August 17, 2012, in order to determine whether the Army could forcibly shave Hasan's beard. Hasan made the argument that his religion requires he wear a beard.
A military appeals court ruled on October 18, 2012, that Hasan could be forcibly shaved.
Hasan was ruled physically fit to represent himself during his court-martial on June 3, 2013.
The court-martial began on August 6, 2013.
On August 23, 2013, a military jury convicted Hasan of 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder. Five days later, after two hours of deliberation, the jury recommended the death penalty.
