UPDATE

FORT HOOD, Texas (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Two U.S. law enforcement officials tell The Associated Press that four people, including the suspected gunman, have been killed in a shooting at Fort Hood.
    
The officials said the four dead in Wednesday's shooting include the shooter.
    
One of the officials, citing official internal Justice Department updates, says 14 others were hurt.
    
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release information by name.
    
The Texas Army base was the scene of a mass shooting in 2009. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded in what was the deadliest attack on a domestic military installation in history.

Previous report:

The official says reports circulating within the Justice Department indicate the shooter has died of what appears to be a self-inflicted wound. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is still ongoing.

The identity of the shooter and the number of victims were not immediately known.

UPDATE: 

(AP) - Fort Hood says there's been a shooting at the Texas Army base and that there have been injuries.
