Obama says "heartbroken" over Fort Hood shooting, situation fluid

U.S. President Barack Obama said on Wednesday that he was heartbroken on a shooting incident which occurred at the U.S. Army base of Fort Hood in Texas Wednesday afternoon.

"We're following it closely," said Obama at a Chicago restaurant.

According to the hastily arranged comments released by the White House, Obama also said the situation is "fluid" right now, and his national security team is in close contact with not just the Defense Department, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

According to officers of the base, the shooting so far has left four dead, including the shooter, and 16 others injured.

"I want to just assure all of us that we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened," Obama said.

"Obviously this reopens the pain of what happened at Fort Hood five years ago," he said of a shooting rampage in 2009, which left 13 people dead and more than 30 others wounded.

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who is attending the U.S.-hosted ministerial meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Hawaii, said in a statement released by Pentagon Wednesday evening that the shooting was a terrible tragedy for the Fort Hood community, the Department of Defense, and for the nation.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. And my sympathies go out to this strong and resilient community, which has experienced this kind of senseless violence all too recently," he said.

"There is nothing more important to us as an institution than the safety and well-being of our people," he said, adding that "for that reason I am grateful to all the first responders who rushed to the scene."

"We will closely monitor the situation at Fort Hood and stay informed by what investigators and law enforcement personnel learn about the shooting," the Pentagon chief added.
