FBI Fort Hood Rampage Suspect's Home Nearly Empty


FORT HOOD, Texas - An FBI agent who searched the home of the U.S. soldier accused in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage says the apartment was nearly empty.

FBI agent Donna Cowling testified Friday during the military trial of Nidal Hasan. He's accused of killing 13 people and injuring more than 30 at the Texas military base.

Cowling says she led a team to Hasan's apartment near the Army post the night of the attack. She says there was no furniture, only a card table, a prayer rug and a shredder. On the table was a package for a pistol laser sight, rubber bands and paper towels.

Witnesses have testified that Hasan stuffed paper towels in his pockets before the attack to muffle the sound of his ammunition.
