FORT HOOD, Texas — The call came over the radio. "Shots fired." And then, even worse: "Officer down."
Billy Rhoads, chief of the Fort Hood Fire Department, grabbed a radio and donned his flak jacket. He jumped into his SUV and tore down the road. A dozen or so blocks away, at the Soldier Readiness Center, a gunman had opened fire on soldiers.
