The 1st Cavalry Division, based at Fort Hood, sent a Twitter alert telling people to close doors and stay away from windows. Fort Hood\'s Directorate of Emergency Services told US media it had received reports, though unconfirmed, that the gunman was dead.

Mr Obama said Ford Hood had sacrificed so much for freedom. Map \"We know these families. We know their incredible service to our country and the sacrifices that they make.

24.02.2014 - "By living together under one roof in the Olympic Village

Bach used his speech at the closing ceremony in the Fisht Stadium to emphasise Olympic values. "By living together under one roof in the Olympic Village you send a powerful message from Sochi to the world, that of a society of peace, tolerance and respect," he said. "I appeal to everybody implicated in confrontation, oppression and violence to act on this Olympic message of dialogue and peace." Russian President Vladimir Putin, who watched the ceremony from the stands and made several appearances at the Games to oversee the nation's investment of £600m in elite sport, did not get his wish of a gold medal in the ice hockey. But victory for the four-man Russian bobsleigh team gave the host nation their 13th gold medal of the Games - and 33 medals in total - to ensure they topped the medal table, emulating Canada's achievement four years ago. Play media BBC Sport's Sochi 2014 Awards BBC Sport's Sochi 2014 Awards It marked a stunning turnaround from the 2010 Vancouver Games where Russia won just 15 medals, including three golds, to finish 11th overall - their worst ever result. "People kept asking me whether I believed Russia could do as well as Canada did in Vancouver and I didn't believe it," said Russian Alexander Legkov, who won gold in the 50km cross-country. "Now this is our pride, it's wonderful. What could be better than ending the Olympics with a gold medal and helping Russia top the medal table?" The Games cost £30bn, making Sochi the most expensive Olympics ever, and featured a record 2,800 athletes from 88 countries, with 12 new events added to attract young audiences. But there were also six failed drugs tests - five more than in Vancouver - as the most extensive anti-doping programme in Winter Olympics history saw a record 2,453 tests carried out. The host nation's problem with stray dogs has been well documented and struck a chord with many competing athletes. Many have adopted dogs, while US ice hockey player David Backes is working on plans to open a shelter back home and bring the strays over. Organisers made a joke at their own expense in the closing ceremony as dancers formed themselves into four rings and a small clump in a nod to the malfunction in the opening ceremony, when one of the Olympic rings failed to open.
