WASHINGTON (REUTERS/AFP) - One person was killed and 14 were wounded on Wednesday in a shooting incident at the Fort Hood military base in Texas, a US official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The official, who noted the information was preliminary, said he could not confirm the status of the shooter.

Fort Hood was on lockdown after an active shooter situation on the military base, scene of a deadly 2009 rampage.

"There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported," the base said in a statement, adding that emergency crews were on the scene.
