TODAY IN FORT HOOD … INVESTIGATORS CONTINUE THEIR SEARCH FOR A MOTIVE IN THE SHOOTING THAT LEFT THREE DEAD AND SIXTEEN INJURED.

WHILE INVESTIGATORS TRY TO RETRACE THE DEADLY FINAL MINUTES OF SPECIALIST IVAN LOPEZ …

THE BASE IS HONORING THE PEOPLE KILLED AND WOUNDED - AND LOOKING FOR WAYS TO STOP A SIMILAR TRAGEDY IN THE FUTURE.

BRIAN MOOAR HAS THE LATEST ON THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


FORT HOOD SHOOTINGS-PKG


Texas:00 -:03

"Wednesday's shooting brought the danger of a combat zone into Fort Hood."

TWO CONGRESSMEN WHO REPRESENT THE FORT HOOD AREA ARE ASKING A QUESTION ON THE MINDS OF MANY IN RECENT DAYS:

WAS ENOUGH DONE TO PROTECT THE BASE IN THE WAKE OF THE DEADLY 2009 SHOOTING RAMPAGE?

Texas:17 -:20

"This is my second time, and I hope I never see a third."

THE 2009 ATTACK BY MAJOR NIDAL HASAN AND THIS PAST WEEK'S SHOOTING BY SPECIALIST IVAN LOPEZ BEAR ONLY PASSING SIMILARITIES -

ONE WAS A PREMEDITATED ATTACK. THE LATEST, AN APPARENT OUTBURST BY A SOLDIER WITH MOUNTING MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES.

WHILE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO MAKE THIS BASE AND OTHERS LIKE IT SAFER …

THIS COMMUNITY IS ALSO HONORING THE LIVES LOST - LIKE SERGEANT FIRST CLASS DANNY FERGUSON.

FRIENDS WEREN'T SURPRISED TO LEARN HE DIED WHILE SAVING OTHERS.

"They are trained to go out and fight to protect and that's what he did. He died a hero."

A NEARBY CHURCH PLANTED AN AMERICAN FLAG FOR EACH OF THE WOUNDED… AND THREE CROSSES FOR THOSE WHO DIED.

"All of them had deployed to a war zone and not died, and then they come back to a place where they think they're safe and they do die."

FORT HOOD. STILL COMING TO GRIPS WITH A TRAGEDY AND DETERMINED TO KEEP HISTORY FROM REPEATING ITSELF.

EXTENDED

CITIES

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

MORE WARMTH FOR SUNDAY

It was a mostly sunny and warm start to the weekend across Southwest Florida, with highs climbing into the mid 80s. A few clouds will likely remain this evening, with temps falling into the 70s.

Expect mild conditions overnight, with lows in the mid 60s. Some patchy fog may again develop towards daybreak.

The warmth continues into Sunday. We'll see partly cloudy skies to a blend of sun & clouds for much of the day. Highs on Sunday will again be in the low to mid 80s, with a few locations inland pushing into the upper 80s.

Changes are still expected to start next week. Our next storm system begins to approach the region on Monday, resulting in more cloud cover. A few showers may also develop on Monday Night. Highs to start the week will be in the mid 80s.

The storm system will move through the region on Tuesday. Right now, it looks like the best chance for showers and storms will be during the daytime hours. A few storms may be strong, but the worst of the activity will likely stay north of the area. Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 80s.

Cooler and drier air rushes into the region for midweek. We'll see just a few clouds on Wednesday, with highs only in upper 70s.

Warmer weather will return to region to close next week, with highs on Friday back in the mid 80s. Right now, next weekend looks dry with highs holding in the mid 80s. Return to index of stories...
