Officer Who Shot Hasan Identified

Ft. Hood police officer Kimberly Munley. She's in stable condition.

Munley, who had been trained in active-response tactics, rushed into the building and confronted the shooter as he was turning a corner, Cone said.

"It was an amazing and an aggressive performance by this police officer," Cone said.

Munley was only a few feet from crazed Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan when she opened fire.

Well done Officer Munley. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

One more thought (expressed already by a few commenters, but worth repeating), LTG Cone speaks about her training in "active-response tactics", i.e. she didn't wait for backup, they didn't surround the place with overwhelming force. She arrived on the scene, charged in there, confronted this son of a bitch and took him down. Because of that she saved more lives.

Lessons learned.
