FORT HOOD — No soldier will ever again enter the site of the worst mass shooting on a military installation. Building 42003, where Nidal Hasan opened fire on soldiers four years ago as they prepared for deployment, will be torn down, said Brian Dosa, director of Fort Hood’s Directorate of Public Works.

The building, part of the Soldier Readiness Processing Center, sits in a cluster with four other buildings and all have remained mostly untouched since the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting. The area was fenced off and considered an active crime scene for years, pending the sentencing of the shooter. In August, Hasan was found guilty and sentenced to death.
