BELCOURT, N.D. -- A shooting rampage Thursday in Texas killed 13 people and wounded 30, including a North Dakota man who was stationed at Fort Hood.


Army Sgt. Patrick Blue III, 23, was hit in the side by bullet fragments during the attack and was hospitalized to remove the fragments and get stitches. His dad, Patrick Blue Jr., said he was released from the hospital Friday morning.

"He was one of the luckier ones, and just caught a few fragments," he said.
