Day 4: Testimony Continues in the Hasan Trial

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- Testimony continues Friday in the Hasan Trial.

Before Friday, 27 witnesses have taken the stand, and 7 of them were among the wounded.

Many of them have identified Hasan as the shooter and say he rapidly and methodically loaded and fired his weapon into a crowd of soldiers preparing to deploy.

The Government has set out to prove that Hasan became radicalized gradually over the years, that he began training himself for the attack months in advance, that he singled out soldiers in uniform with the exception of the sole civilian killed, because he got in the way, and that he sought out the most high tech and efficient weapon he could find when he opened fire on soldiers preparing to deploy on November 5, 2009.

He could face death for the 13 premeditated murder charges and 32 attempted premeditated murder charges against him.

Witnesses continued to take the stand and relive that day.

CPT Brandi Mason was wounded that day. She remembers hearing someone yell "Allahu Akbar." She then said, "There was a man with a beige complexion pointed at my head." That man then turned away from her and started shooting. CPT Mason said, "I thought it was training. Didn't think it was real. Everybody just sat there and looked at him like, really?" She says she watched him walk to the middle of the room. She recalls, "Then something wet splashed across me. I thought it was paintballs, so I wiped it off my phone." After she hid behind tables, "It scared me and I popped my head back in real quick and popped my hips out and I felt a sharp pain in my hips." She went on to say that she didn't know it was for real.

PFC Najee Hull was also wounded that day. PFC Hull describes what happened to him, "Someone jumped from behind the table right at the northwest corner and then with two handguns and started shooting. I made eye contact and then I get shot in my knee." After he crawled his way towards the cubicles, "I see a woman and she is panicking and going through mass chaos, and I get shot again." Thankfully, he was able to get to the hospital in a friend's truck.
