The Heroes of Fort Hood
One of the first civilian police officers to arrive at the scene was Sgt. Kimberly Munley, a 34-year-old mother of two who earned the nickname "Mighty Mouse" during her military service. Authorities say Sgt. Munley fired at Maj. Hasan twice. Maj. Hasan then allegedly charged at her, firing. Sgt. Munley managed to fire a few more rounds and fell on her back, shot in each leg and her wrist.
Senior Sgt. Mark Todd, another civilian police offer with military service, joined Sgt. Munley. Together, they took down Maj. Hasan. Senior Sgt. Todd was not injured. Maj. Hasan is in stable condition and remains in custody.
Witnesses say the death toll would have been much worse if it weren't for the heroic actions of Sgt. Munley and Senior Sgt. Todd.
