The police officer who brought down a gunman after he went on a shooting rampage at the Fort Hood Army base was on the way to have her car repaired when she responded to a police radio report of gunfire at a center where soldiers are processed before being sent overseas, the authorities said Friday.
As she pulled up to the center, the officer, Kimberly Denise Munley, spotted the gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, brandishing a pistol and chasing down a wounded soldier outside the building, said Chuck Medley, the director of emergency services at the base.
Munley - a graduate of John T. Hoggard High School in Wilmington and a former Wrightsville Beach police officer - bolted from her car, yanked her pistol out and shot at Hasan. He turned on her and began to fire. She ran toward him, continuing to fire, and both she and Hasan went down with several bullet wounds, Medley said.
