Obama 'heartbroken' over Texas shooting
US President Barack Obama said he was "heartbroken" that another shooting had occurred at the Fort Hood Army base.
"We are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened," Obama said. "We're heartbroken that something like this might have happened again."
The latest shooting at Fort Hood is throwing a spotlight on the US military's so-far frustrated efforts to secure its bases from potential shooters, who increasingly appear to see the facilities as attractive targets.
