FORT BENNING, Ga., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- A box of hollow-point bullets and a note threatening a Fort Hood-style massacre were found at Fort Benning, Ga., a source told the Army Times.
The unidentified source said the box, with 20 bullets, and a handwritten note were found in a motor pool area on the Army base Thursday, the Times reported Saturday.
"The note said, 'Tell the commanding general to call off all charges or there will be a re-enactment of Fort Hood,'" the witness told the newspaper.
The military has charged Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan with 13 counts of premeditated murder in the Nov. 5 massacre at Fort Hood, Texas. The shooting rampage injured dozens more.
Elsie Jackson, a spokeswoman for Fort Benning, would confirm only the finding of a "suspicious package" and a threatening letter. She said "appropriate force protection measures are in place" while authorities investigate.
