Soldier accused in Fort Hood shooting questions, for 1st time, a witness who saw rampage

The soldier on trial for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood has broken his largely silent defense by briefly questioning a witness who saw the attack.

Maj. Nadal Hasan, who is representing himself, cross-examined Staff Sgt. Juan Alvarado on Monday.

Alvarado says he saw a gunfight between Hasan and Kimberly Munley, a Fort Hood police officer who responded to the shootings at the Texas military base.

Alvarado says Hasan tried to shoot Munley after she'd been shot and disarmed.

Hasan asked Alvarado: "I don't want to put words in your mouth, (but) are you saying that after it was clear that she was disarmed, I continued to fire at her?"

Alvarado said that was correct.

Prosecutors have called more than 80 witnesses. Hasan has only questioned three of them.
