Fort Hood shooter 'was aiming at soldiers,' victim says

The first witness in the Fort Hood massacre hearing gave a chilling account Wednesday of how he and others were shot last November.

Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, speaking on the second day of the Article 32 hearing, said Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan pulled a weapon from underneath his uniform and began firing.

Hasan is charged with the murder of 13 people at Fort Hood on November 5 and the wounding of 32 others.

"I noticed the weapon he was firing had an infrared sight, like a laser sight on the weapon," Lunsford said. "He was aiming at the soldiers."
