Nidal Hasan, Fort Hood shooter, hospitalized as appeal delayed over beard shaving

 Major Nidal Hasan, the killer of 13 people at Fort Hood in a shooting spree has been admitted to an Army hospital in Texas for treatment of an undisclosed condition, according to a statement from the military on Monday.

Hasan was admitted Saturday to Carl Darnal Medical Center and is expected to be released within 48 hours, Fort Hood’s public affairs office said around noon.

The military did not disclose why Hasan was in the hospital, citing federal government regulations against conveying patients’ medical information. He was in “good condition” Monday, according to Fort Hood.

His lead military attorney, Lt. Col. Chris Poppe, said only that his client wasn’t suffering from a self-inflicted wound.

Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting spree but the Army Court of Criminal Appeals this month delayed its start indefinitely to determine whether his beard can be forcibly shaved during trial.

 Hasan’s court-martial tied to the 2009 mass shooting had been scheduled to start last month at Fort Hood, Texas. But the Army Court of Criminal Appeals this month delayed its start indefinitely to determine whether his beard can be forcibly shaved during trial.
