Texas – Major Nidal Hasan, an army psychiatrist who was charged in a 2009 shooting rampage at the Texas military post Fort Hood, has been convicted on 13 counts of murder. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the military jury is set to decide whether he should receive the death penalty on Monday.

Hasan, who fired his legal team and began representing himself during his 14-day trial, reportedly acknowledged he was the gunman in the shooting to jurors and stated he had “switched sides” for the protection of Muslim insurgents. In addition to the 13 people killed in the incident, 30 others were wounded. Hasan was shot by a responding police officer, which ended the massacre, and left paralyzed from the waist down.

Hasan is quoted by the AP as having stated in regards to planning the attack, “It wasn’t done under the heat of sudden passion… There was adequate provocation — that these were deploying soldiers that were going to engage in an illegal war.”
