Family of WI native hurt in Fort Hood shooting reacts to guilty verdict

RANDOM LAKE (WKOW) -- A Sheboygan County family is relieved by a guilty verdict Friday in the trial for the Fort Hood shooting suspect.

Major Nidal Hasan was found guilty of killing 13 people at the Texas military base in 2009. He will be sentenced Monday, facing the death penalty.

Two of the dead and four of the injured are from Wisconsin, including Amber Bahr from Random Lake. Her mother Lisa Pfund says it's been a tough road for her family ever since that day when her daughter was shot in the back.

Bahr still experiences pain and PTSD.

"Every single day I think about it and I probably always will," Pfund says. "I didn't expect anything less than a guilty verdict."

Pfund and other victims are lobbying for the government to re-classify the shooting as an act of terror. The defense department has said it's considered workplace violence.
