NEW INFORMATION: Oklahoman Killed at Fort Hood

Oklahoma City, OK – Shooting claims former Oklahoman

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma family members of a 22-year-old soldier stationed at Fort Hood have been notified that he was one of the 13 people killed when an Army psychiatrist went on a shooting rampage at the Texas base.

Gale Hunt of Frederick said Friday two uniformed soldiers came to her door at 11:30 p.m. Thursday to notify her of the death of her son, Spc. Jason Dean Hunt.

She said her son went into the military after graduation from Tipton High School, and had served three and a-half years, including a stint in Iraq. He was married two months ago.

He was previously stationed at Fort Stewart in Georgia.

She described him as family-oriented and quiet and said he enjoyed video games.

The suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was shot and remains hospitalized.
