Ft. Hood Shooting Victim's Mom Speaks Out in Emotional Interview
Three people were killed and 16 injured after a gunman opened fire at Fort Hood in Texas on Wednesday. Fox News reporter Lea Gabrielle spoke to the mother of one of the victims, Sgt. Timothy Owens.
The 37-year-old was a counselor for the Army and had just gotten married last August.
Mary Muntean said she called her son after seeing news about the shooting at Fort Hood. When she couldn’t reach him, she called his wife.
In an emotional phone interview, Muntean recalled the conversation with her daughter-in-law.
“She said ‘Oh, he’s just in the hospital and we don’t have any reports or anything to tell you, but when we find out, we’ll let you know.’ An hour or so later, she called me back. She said, ‘Mom, I’m sorry. I told you a lie. He’s gone.’”
Muntean said Sgt. Owens served 11 years in the Army. Listen to the interview above.
