'We're heart-broken that something like this might have happened again'

OBAMA: "Any shooting is troubling. Obviously this reopens the pain of what happened in Ft. Hood five years ago. We know these families. We know their incredible service to our country and the sacrifices that they make. Obviously our thoughts and prayers are with the entire community. And we are going to do everything we can to make sure that the community at Ft. Hood has what it needs to deal with the current situation but also any potential aftermath. We're heart-broken that something like this might have happened again."
