Ft. Hood Suspect Ok'd for Hospital Release

Ad Feedback

The man accused of going on a deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood Army base is out of the hospital and apparently headed to jail.

Maj. Nidal Hasan has received his "discharge physical" from the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.

There's no word on when he will be released from the hospital, however, negotiations between Fort Hood representatives and the Bell County Jail have reached their final stages.

On March 22, the Bell County Commissioners Court approved an amendment to the contract for Hasan's imprisonment.

"The extraordinary circumstances surrounding this inmate require unusual and extraordinary security measures," Bell County Sheriff Dan Smith said. "These issues could not have been addressed without this amendment."

A police officer shot Hasan during the Fort Hood massacre Nov. 5, leaving him paralyzed.

It's estimated it will cost more than $200,000 to contain Hasan for the remainder of the year at the Bell County Jail. Modifications have had to be made since the suspect is paralyzed from the waist down.

Hasan is being charged with 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.
