An Army medical official says the man suspected of opening fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood has been transferred to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.

Hospital spokeswoman Maria Gallegos says Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is in stable condition in the intensive care unit at the hospital on Fort Sam Houston outside San Antonio, about 150 miles southwest of Fort Hood.

Gallegos said Friday that the "shooter is here." She would not provide more details.

Hasan is accused of opening fire at the Soldier Readiness Center at Fort Hood, Texas on Thursday in a shooting rampage that left 13 dead. He was shot by a civilian police officer on the scene.

A training director at Walter Reed Medical Center says the man suspected of a shooting rampage that left 12 dead at Fort Hood, Texas, had some "difficulties" while he was an intern.

Dr. Thomas Grieger says Nidal Malik Hasan required counseling as a medical student because of problems with patients, but he didn't offer details of the issues.

He described Hasan as a "mostly very quiet" person who never spoke ill of the military or his country. He was at the centerpursuing his career in psychiatry.

Law enforcement officials say he came to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings about suicide bombings, although it's not certain that Hasan is the author.

A fellow officer told Fox News Hasan fought his deployment to Iraq and argued with soldiers who supported U.S. wars.

Military officials say the 39-year-old Army major was shot four times during today's rampage and is on a ventilator andunconscious.
