Review of revision 908012 [Passed]Edit

Number deadEdit

The number of dead was briefly reduced from 12 to 11 and then back to 12, the confusion is that there were 11 victims killed plus the gunman.--Doug (talk) 22:24, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

One perp identifiedEdit

as Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan - MSNBC. Scott Sanchez (talk) 22:32, 5 November 2009 (UTC) Hasan is identified as being dead. Scott Sanchez (talk) 22:38, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Ft Hood WebsiteEdit

Ft Hood Website was on-line a few minutes ago. Loading may be a bit slow --[[Special:Contributions/220.101.28.25|22* "[ ]" — 0.101.28.25]] (talk) 01:25, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Are you sure? When i follow the link all i get is a "Service Unavailable" message. Tempodivalse [talk] 01:33, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, you've got me there That exact link still seems out of service. I was actually at this URL http://www.hood.army.mil/ link. Here much general info still seems to be available. Whether they deliberately took it down themselves, or just too much traffic to the site? --220.101.28.25 (talk) 03:34, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Hm, the link you provided (http://www.hood.army.mil/) was also down a few hours ago, i checked (now it's back up, but loading slow). I'll bet they removed or moved http://www.hood.army.mil/fthood because i get a 404 error (which, iirc, don't result from heavy site traffic). I'll change the external link to the functioning web page. Tempodivalse [talk] 04:22, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Other Suspects Released?Edit

Sources of Wikipedia article "Fort Hood shooting" says other suspects have been released.

Thirteen dead, thirty injuredEdit

According to this BBC article, thirteen people are dead, and thirty injured. I presume this means that one of the injured people has now died. Should we update the article? Dendodge T\C 16:10, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

The 24 hours maximum for updating an article isn't yet expired, i think we could update it if it is done fairly soon. Tempodivalse [talk] 16:12, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
