KILLEEN, Texas — A Facebook page dedicated to “Prayers for Fort Hood” received hundreds of posts supporting family members of those affected by the mass shooting on the post.
One person wrote: “My heavy heart is with my fellow soldiers and their families this is our community and you are our families.”
The site quickly gained more than 1,500 members.
Families turned to the social media, including Facebook and Twitter, to seek news about family members after post was locked down on Thursday.
The Fort Hood massacre, in which 12 people were killed and 31 others wounded, is believed to be the worst mass shooting in history at a U.S. military base.
