Site of 2009 Fort Hood shooting torn down

WASHINGTON : The building that was the site of the worst shooting massacre at a military installation in US history was demolished Tuesday four years after the rampage, according to media reports.
The structure — Building 42003 in Fort Hood in central Texas — was razed by a heavy equipment excavator, the Austin
American-Statesman newspaper said.
Once serving as a soldier readiness processing center, the building was considered an active crime scene and had been sealed off for nearly four years.
On Nov. 5, 2009, then Major Nidal Hasan, an American of Jordanian descent, opened fire on unarmed soldiers in a crowded room when they were making final preparations for deployment, killing 13 and wounding 32 others. The army psychiatrist turned killer was found guilty on 13 charges of premeditated murder.
