Admitted Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan choose not to make any statements on behalf of the defense during closing arguments of his court martial Thursday. The judge will now give the jury panel instructions before they head into deliberations.
Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and injuring hundreds more in the 2009 shooting rampage at the Fort Hood Army Post in Killeen.
A former Army Psychiatrist, Maj. Hasan has represented himself during the 13-day span of his court martial, saying very little.
Prosecutor Col. Steve Henricks asked jurors during his closing argument Thursday to unanimously convict Maj. Nidal Hasan of premeditated murder. That would allow prosecutors to seek the death penalty.
Henricks says “there's no doubt'” that Hasan carried out the attack.
Henricks says Hasan asked for the highest-tech weapon available when he went to a gun store a few months before the attack and then began practicing. Hasan also used laser sights, which Henricks says “established intent to kill.''
If convicted, Maj. Hasan could face the death penalty.
