YORK, YORK COUNTY—Anita Hodges of Pittsburgh has spent the past three years dedicating her life to the military, along with her husband, Specialist Zack Hodges, who's currently serving in Iraq. Anita works in the hearing department of the Soldier Readiness Area on the Ford Hood base. She was at work on Thursday when the chaotic scene started unfolding. She spoke with FOX43 by telephone Sunday night.
"We had 300 people scheduled for that day so there were tons of people in there," said Antia.
Anita said there are only five army psychiatrists at Fort Hood. One of them is U.S. Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the suspect in Thursday's shooting. After killing and wounding people outside the building, Anita said Hasan came inside causing even more damage.
"When I was in the briefing room, I turned around and he was literally 15 feet behind me. Honestly, it looked like he, it didn't look like he was targeting anybody specific. It looked like he was targeting everybody," said Anita.
A U.S. Army spokesperson said Hasan, who was shot during an exchange of gunfire is still in a Texas hospital. He is listed in critical, but stable condition.
