FORT HOOD, Texas — A U.S. Army spokesman said the Fort Hood, Texas, shootings suspect is alive and was not killed by authorities responding to the attack.
Lt. Gen. Bob Cone also said the death toll from the attack remains 12 after another victim died.
Authorities said immediately after Thursday's attack that they had killed the suspected shooter. But Cone said the suspected shooter is alive and in stable condition.
Cone offered little explanation to reporters at a news conference as to why the suspect was believed dead, and said only there was confusion at the hospital.
