WASHINGTON - A U.S. law enforcement official says the suspected gunman at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas is now believed to be dead.

Fort Hood confirmed the shooting on the base in a brief statement Wednesday evening. The statement also said emergency crews were on the scene and that further details were not yet known.

The official says reports circulating within the Justice Department indicate the shooter has died of what appears to be a self-inflicted wound. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is still ongoing.

The identity of the shooter and the number of victims were not immediately known.
