FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — A federal investigator who responded to the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood says the crime scene was gruesome, with bodies and medical equipment "all over the floor."
FBI Special Agent Susan Martin testified Tuesday during the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan. He's accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others in the attack at the Texas military base.
Martin says agents found hundreds of pieces of evidence, including 146 shell casings and six magazines, inside the building where the shootings took place.
She says agents eventually ran out of numeric markers and used sticky notes.
The testimony marked a shift as prosecutors begin focusing on forensic evidence. In the trial's first week, prosecutors zipped through 60-plus witnesses, many of them soldiers injured in the attack.
Meanwhile, it was disclosed on Tuesday that Hasan told mental health professionals after the attack that he "would still be a martyr" if convicted and executed by the government.
The remarks made by Hasan in 2010 are being made public at a time when his standby defense attorneys are insisting he's angling for a death sentence.
Hasan is representing himself as he faces charges for the attack that killed 13 people.
The New York Times obtained the statements by Hasan from a report that concluded Hasan was fit to stand trial. The newspaper obtained the documents from Hasan's former attorney, John Galligan.
Galligan didn't immediately return messages Tuesday.
Hasan has asked no questions of shooting victims during trial. Prosecutors were calling expert witnesses Tuesday.
