Bomb threat

Law enforcement officials, including K-9 units from the Killeen Police Department, work the scene of a bomb threat Wednesday, June 19, 2013, at the Bell County Justice Complex in Belton.


BELTON — A man threatened to detonate a bomb at a Bell County courthouse Wednesday unless officials met the demands of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan.

The Belton Police Department received a call from a man who said he would detonate an explosive device “if Hasan doesn’t get what he asks for,” according to a statement from Bell County Judge Jon Burrows.
