Fort Hood Victim: 'Justice Has Been Served'



Bookmark and Share

A retired Army staff sergeant who encountered Maj. Nidal Hasan during the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage says "justice has been served."
    
A military jury unanimously convicted Hasan on Friday of 13 counts of premeditated murder for the shooting. The trial will now move the penalty phase, where Hasan faces a possible death sentence.
    
Howard Ray told The Associated Press on Friday that the verdict sends a message that the military "isn't going to mess with this kind of terrorism."
    
Ray, who lives in Rochelle, Texas, says Hasan fired several shots in his direction on Nov. 5, 2009, and missed him by inches. The 33-year-old suffered nightmares and anxiety for a year after the shooting.
    
Hasan represented himself at the trial and didn't call any witnesses during his defense.
