Jury selection continuing in Fort Hood trial

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) _ Jury selection enters its second week in the murder trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage.

Six new potential jurors will be brought in from Army posts nationwide for questioning Monday for the Fort Hood trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who's serving as his own attorney. Ten potential jurors remain from a group of 20 questioned last week, when jury selection began Tuesday.

Hasan faces execution or life without parole if convicted in the rampage that left 13 dead and nearly three dozen wounded on the Texas Army post.

A group of officers who equal Hasan's rank or higher will arrive each week until a 13- to 16-member jury is chosen for Hasan's court-martial. Testimony is expected to start Aug. 6.

    Three teenagers have been arrested after shots rang out in one Altus neighborhood. It happened just after noon on West Frisco Street.

Officers are still searching for that weapon. No word on what prompted the shooting - or if anyone was hurt.
