Prosecution Rests In Fort Hood Shooting Trial

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Military prosecutors have rested their case against the Army psychiatrist accused in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

Prosecutors wrapped up their case Tuesday during the military trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others at the Texas military base in November 2009.


Prosecutors called nearly 90 witnesses. Many of them identified Hasan as the gunman who opened fire inside a crowded medical building at the sprawling Army post on Nov. 5, 2009.

Hasan is acting as his own attorney, but he's questioned only three witnesses and has raised few objections.

That enabled prosecutors to get through as many 15 witnesses a day.

Hasan could face the death penalty if convicted.
