The Bexar County Sheriff as well as KSAT News12 in San Antonio are both now reporting two dead and that the shooter is still active.


A number of local news outlets are speculating that this is likely a murder/suicide, but the air force base remains on lock-down and helicopters are still in the air above, no word as to how many are news choppers and how many are police helicopters.

To look at the news coverage and the amount of law enforcement personnel on the scene, it may seem a bit much but in 2009 just a few miles up the road,  Nidal Hasan, a U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others.

So the response to today’s shooting certainly has merit given the proximity between the two bases.
