No verdict yet in Fort Hood shooting rampage trial

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Military jurors haven't reached a verdict against the soldier on trial for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

Maj. Nidal Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 30 others at the Texas military base.

The case was given to jurors Thursday afternoon. They deliberated for about three hours before asking the judge if they could review testimony from the Fort Hood police officer who shot the gunman and ended the rampage.

The judge agreed, then she dismissed jurors for the night. Deliberations are scheduled to resume Friday morning.

Jurors heard testimony from nearly 90 witnesses, many of whom identified Hasan as the gunman.

Hasan is acting as his own attorney but has put up virtually no defense.

If convicted, Hasan could face the death penalty.
