UPDATE (8:40 p.m.): FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Officials at Fort Hood, a massive Army post in central Texas, say a shooter opened fire at the facility, injuring 14 people.  Officials say the shooter is believed to be dead.

The details about the number of people hurt came from two U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the information by name. The Army said on its official Twitter feed that the Injured are being treated at the post's Carl R. Darnall Medical Center and other local hospitals.

A law enforcement official says reports circulating within the Justice Department indicate the shooter died of what appears to be a self-inflicted wound.

Speaking from Chicago, President Barack Obama said he was following the situation closely and that the government will get to the bottom of what happened.  He called the shooting heartbreaking and a painful reminder of a 2009 mass shooting at the post that left 13 people dead and more than 30 wounded.  The shooter in that case was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death.

UPDATE (6:56 p.m.): (FOX NEWS) -- An "active shooter" incident with casualties at Ft. Hood has left at least two people injured, officials said.

A senior law enforcement official told Fox News that it is believed one shooter has been "neutralized," and authorities believe there may be another shooter in the vicinity.

At least two people were reported to be taken to a hospital but there was no immediate report on their injuries.

"There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported," the base said in a press release. "Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time."

A worker at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, which is located at Ft. Hood, told Fox News they were treating two patients who were wounded in the shooting. The worker says doctors have been told to expect more, although it's unclear how many more they might be expecting.

"It's chaos," a source outside the hospital told FoxNews.com. "I see lots of ambulances coming in. There are helicopters everywhere."

The sheriff's office dispatched deputies and troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety to the nearby Texas Army base, Bell County Sheriff's Office Lt. Donnie Adams said.

Fort Hood ordered everyone at the base to "shelter in place." The order was sent on the base's Twitter feed and posted on its Facebook page.

The 1st Calvary Division, which is based at Fort Hood, sent a Twitter alert telling people on base to close doors and stay away from windows.

President Obama has been informed of the shooting and will continue to receive updates, the White House said.

In 2009, U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, a psychiatrist who had become a radical Muslim while serving in the military, killed 13 people and injured dozens more inside the Army base in Killeen, Texas. Hasan, who represented himself at a military trial after clashing with his appointed attorneys, was sentenced to death in August.
