All clear after US army base shooting
(04-03 10:17)

All-clear sirens have sounded at US Army base Fort Hood as the lockdown was lifted hours after a deadly shooting at the Texas post.
Hundreds of cars began streaming from the giant complex, including children who had been kept in locked-down schools.
The base was the scene of a mass shooting in 2009.
US law enforcement officials say four people, including the shooter, were killed when a gunman opened fire Wednesday at Fort Hood.
One of the officials, citing official internal US Justice Department updates, said 14 others were hurt. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release information by name.—AP
