Cameron man killed in Fort Hood shooting
CAMERON-The tragedy that happened at Fort Hood on Thursday afternoon has hit close to home. Mike Cahill, of Cameron, is one of the 13 victims from what is being called the largest shooting at a U.S. military base in history.
Cahill, who worked as a physician's assistant for Dr. Sid Richardson in Cameron from 1997 to 2000, died from injuries sustained when a Fort Hood soldier opened fire inside the Soldier Readiness Center on that base.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged shooter, killed 12 soldiers and one civilian and wounded 30 others,according to military officials.
Hasan was first believed to have been killed during the incident, but then Fort Hood officials came back a few hours later stating that the alleged shooter was alive. Last reports were that Hasan was in a coma but expected to survive his injuries.
