Soldier Named In 2nd Alleged Ft. Hood Attack: Pvt. Nasser Jason Abdo; Continued Making Threats After Arrest

An AWOL U.S. military service member has been arrested near Fort Hood with explosives and weapons in his vehicle.

The Army solider was arrested by the Killeen Police Department, according to the Public Affairs Office at Fort Hood.

The solider, 21-year-old Pfc. Naser Abdo, was stationed at Ft. Campbell, Ky, and returned from a tour in Afghanistan on July 4, according to KXAN-TV. 

Killeen police spokesperson Carroll Smith said Abdo was arrested at a motel in the city, but released no other details.

NBC News’ Pete Williams learned the solider was said to have been overheard making threatening statements to attack an Army post, possibly Ft. Hood. After his arrest, he continued to make them, according to federal law enforcement officials.

Fox News is reporting that two other soldiers were arrested earlier Thursday, also in possession of weapons and explosions.

On Nov. 5, 2009, Maj. Nadal Hasan, a military psychologist, shot and killed 13 people at the Texas base and wounded 30 others.  He is currently standing trail, facing the death penalty.
