FORT HOOD, Texas — A medical examiner says a soldier killed during the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood suffered a dozen gunshot wounds that indicate he was trying to charge the gunman.

Lt. Col. Phillip Berran testified Thursday during the military trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan.
Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others at the Texas military base in what remains the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation.
Berran testified that the body of Spc. Frederick Greene was riddled with bullet wounds that would be "consistent" with him trying to charge Hasan.
The pathologist reviewed photos of Greene's body for the judge before jurors were led into the courtroom.
Hasan is representing himself during the trial and could face the death penalty if convicted.
