At least 12 people have been killed and 31 others wounded after a US soldier went on the rampage at a military base in Texas.

The soldier was killed on site after opening fire with two handguns at the massive Fort Hood complex in Killeen.

Two other soldiers are being held as suspects following the shooting.

It took place in the Soldier Readiness Centre, which handles administrative details for troops.

The pair were detained at a nearby building.

Eleven of the victims were troops, while a civilian police officer was also killed.

Speaking about the shooting, President Obama called it a "horrific outburst of violence", while base spokesman Lieutenant-General Bob Cone said it was "a terrible tragedy, stunning."

Fort Hood, which is home to about 65,000 soldiers, is currently in lockdown mode.
