LILLINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Nearly four years after a soldier opened fire at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas, the gunman is getting his day in court.
But the military trial that starts Tuesday comes with a heavy burden for survivors who will come face to face with Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan.
The Army psychiatrist will represent himself, putting him in the unusual position of asking questions of the very people he admits attacking back in 2009.
Shawn Manning was shot six times and still has two bullets lodged in his body. He hopes to keep his anger in check when he faces Hasan, who was shot by a civilian police officer and is confined to a wheelchair.
The rampage claimed 13 lives.
Hasan says he was protecting the Taliban from American aggression.
