FORT HOOD, Texas -- Six patients wounded in a Fort Hood shooting rampage have been transferred to a nearby trauma hospital for treatment.

Officials at Scott and White Hospital in Temple say four were transferred from Darnall Army Community Hopsital at Fort Hood initially Wednesday, and that two more were being transferred in Wednesday evening.

Dr. Glen Couchman is the chief medical officer at the hospital. He said the first four admitted to Scott and White had gunshots to chest, abdomen, neck and extremities and that their conditions range from stable to "quite critical."

Two more being airlifted would need immediate surgery for severe injuries.

He believes the most serious patients were brought to Scott & White. There are no casualty numbers or condition reports immediately available from the Fort Hood hospital.
