FORT HOOD, Texas - Military jurors have started deliberating in the case of the soldier accused of killing 13 people during the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

Maj. Nidal Hasan faces numerous counts of premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder for the attack on the Texas military base.

If convicted, Hasan could face the death penalty.

The jury's 13 members are all military officers.

They've heard testimony from nearly 90 witnesses, many of whom identified Hasan as the gunman who opened fire inside a crowded Fort Hood building in November 2009.

Hasan is acting as his own attorney but has put up little defense. He did not give a closing argument earlier Thursday.
