Hero recalls Fort Hood shooting on Oprah
CHICAGO, IL -- An officer who has been hailed as a hero in the Fort Hood massacre says the scene was "confusing and chaotic" but she remembers getting shot.
Sgt. Kimberly Munley says getting shot felt like "a muscle being torn out of my leg."
Munley was one of two civilian police officers who confronted the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people and injuring 29 at the Texas military base last week. She and Sgt. Mark Todd were interviewed on Wednesday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
The 34-year-old Munley is out of the hospital after undergoing two surgeries. The 42-year-old Todd was not wounded.
Todd says the Fort Hood shooting was the first time in his career that he used his weapon.
Munley says it will be a slow process to get back to her normal life, but she knows she can do it.
