HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Tennessee Valley woman now living on Fort Hood said her family is safe following Wednesday's shooting on the base.

Anne Joose is originally from Scottsboro. Joose's husband is a battalion commander and their family is stationed on-post. Joose said she and her family were safe at home at the time of the incident, but Wednesday's events seem surreal.

"You hear the sirens start blaring, telling everyone to stay inside, don't go out of your homes, don't go near the windows," she said. "It gets you really nervous."

Lockdown on the base ended late Wednesday night. The gunman reportedly died of a self-inflicted wound.
