HOUSTON -- Ft. Hood shooting suspect Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was hospitalized this past weekend at the sprawling Army base about 80 miles north of Austin, Texas, an Army official reported Monday.
Hasan, 42, was hospitalized at the base's Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center on Saturday, but it was not clear why, Ft. Hood spokesman Chris Haug told the Los Angeles Times on Monday.
[Updated, 9:36 a.m. Sept. 24: Hasan was listed in good condition and was expected to be released within the next 48 hours, a Ft. Hood spokesman said.]
Hasan has been charged with premeditated murder in connection with the killing of 13 people and the wounding of 32 more in a rampage at Ft. Hood on Nov. 5, 2009. He was shot four times in the attack, paralyzing him from the chest down, and now uses a wheelchair.
