“Fort Hood trial turns bizarre as shooter grills witnesses”
“But he declined to cross-examine one of his shooting victims, Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford…
Lunsford – who was shot seven times during the incident – described what happened that day, saying he first saw Hasan sitting in a chair, with his arms on his knees while looking at the floor.
He said Hasan then jumped up and ordered the one civilian in the room to leave before shouting, “Allahu akbar” and opening fire. Panic set in among the soldiers, who crowded toward a rear door, which was jammed.
Lunsford said he sprinted for the door at one point while Hasan was shooting, then turned around to see the gunman’s laser sight pointing at him before being shot in the head. Lunsford testified he tried to appear dead, then later decided to flee because, “dead men don’t sweat.”
He then made another sprint for the door as he was shot six more times before being pulled to safety.”
