Investigators soon may learn new information about the deadly shooting rampage at a Texas military base now that the man suspected of killing 13 and injuring 29 others is conscious and able to talk.

Dewey Mitchell, a spokesman at Brooke Army Medical Center, said Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan remains in stable condition. Mitchell said Hasan, who has ties to the Washington region, has been awake and able to talk since he was taken off a ventilator Saturday.

Hasan is at Brooke Medical Center in San Antonio, about 150 miles southwest of Fort Hood.

Authorities said Hasan, 39, opened fire at a processing center Thursday at Fort Hood, the country's largest military installation. Thirteen people were killed and 29 were wounded.

The rampage ended when civilian police shot Hasan, who studied, lived, worked and practiced his Muslim faith for years in the Washington, D.C., area.
