4 dead, including Fort Hood gunman - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

4 dead, including Fort Hood gunman

Good evening. I'm Mark Thornhill in the WAFF 48 Newsroom and here are a few of the stories we're following for our 10 o'clock newscast.

We're continuing to follow the very latest developments in the shooting that happened today at the Army base at Ft. Hood, Texas. At last check, 4 people had been killed, including the shooter. A source from the Associated Press says 14 others have been injured. WAFF 48's Sarah Navoy spoke with officials here in the Tennessee Valley at Redstone Arsenal, who feel a kinship with that base. She'll have Redstone's reaction at 10.

The political controversy taking place here on planet Earth has now been extended to space. NASA has issued limitations to it's employees with regards to travel to and conversations with Russian counterparts. This comes after Russia's annexation of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. But this doesn't apply to the delicate balance on board the International Space Station. WAFF 48's Liz Hurley will explain that at 10.

And my weekly Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers involves a robbery that's more than just a little bizarre. A man is on the run after stealing underwear from a Huntsville Walmart. And his scuffle with store security is caught on tape. And that scuffle, as well as a threat of shooting the guard, have turned this simple theft into a serious charge of robbery. You've got to see this surveillance video of the "wrestling match" that took place as the crook tired to leave the store.

We hope you'll join us at 10.
