HASAN LATEST: Former Fort Hood Police Officer Describes Coming Face-to-Face With Hasan

Posted: Updated:

A former Fort Hood Police Officer confronted mass shooting suspect Maj. Nidal Hasan in court today, nearly four years after the last confrontation between the two.

Kimberley Munley's squad car video was played for the jury, showing her high-speed trip to the Soldier Readiness Processing Center building.

The video showed people running toward the parking lot and taking cover behind other cars as Munley exited her cruiser.

Rapid gunshots could be heard on the recording soon after she left the car.

Munley said a red laser sight crossed her eyes soon after she left the car.

"I go into a laying down prone position and try to use the building as cover and locate the shooter," she said.

Munley said the gunman continued shooting and ran within 8 feet of her as she tried to shoot back.

She said she stood to take better aim, was wounded three times and continued trying to shoot back when her gun malfunctioned.

"I see him standing over me trying to fire his weapon, as well," she said.

Munley said another officer, Fort Hood Police Sergeant Mark Todd, then fired the bullets that finally took the assailant down.

Asked to identify the man who shot her, Munley pointed to Hasan in the courtroom.

He asked her no questions and her testimony was over.

Prosecution testimony is expected to continue in the trial next week.

Hasan is accused of 13 counts of capital murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.

He admitted committing the shootings in an opening trial statement but he will get time to present a defense.

Hasan could face the death penalty if convicted of premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder. Prosecutors have called 74 witnesses heading into Friday, the ninth day of the trial.
