Once Again, in a Gun-Free Zone…: The top commander at Fort Hood

is crediting a civilian police officer for stopping the shooting

rampage that killed 13 people at the Texas post. Lt. Gen. Bob

Cone said Friday that Fort Hood police Sgt. Kimberly Munley and

her partner responded within three minutes of reported gunfire

Thursday afternoon. Cone said Munley shot the gunman four times

despite being shot herself. Officials said Munley was in stable

condition. Cone said, “It was an amazing and an aggressive

performance by this police officer.” Cone also said he was

inspired by a woman who helped carry a wounded victim and used

her blouse as a tourniquet, then later realized she’d been shot

in the hip. The suspected gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, is

hospitalized on a ventilator. (Military personnel are generally

disarmed on their own bases unless they are participating in

live-fire training. As in civilian life, such prohibitions do not

affect committed criminals.)\R2009110601112.html\_gunman,_ended_rampage
