Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who allegedly went on a deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, has been charged by a military court with 13 counts of premeditated murder, capital offenses under military law.

The Army Criminal Investigation Command told reporters Thursday that additional charges may be pending.

Hasan is now officially the defendant in the killing of 12 soldiers and a civilian employee on November 5. He was wounded by a heroic civilian police officer who took three shots, herself.
