FORT HOOD (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The soldier on trial for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood has broken his largely silent defense by briefly questioning a witness who saw the attack.

Maj. Nadal Hasan, who is representing himself, cross-examined Staff Sgt. Juan Alvarado on Monday.

Alvarado says he saw a gunfight between Hasan and Kimberly Munley, a Fort Hood police officer who responded to the shootings at the Texas military base.

Alvarado says Hasan tried to shoot Munley after she’d been shot and disarmed.

Hasan asked Alvarado: “I don’t want to put words in your mouth, (but) are you saying that after it was clear that she was disarmed, I continued to fire at her?”

Alvarado said that was correct.

Prosecutors have called more than 80 witnesses. Hasan has only questioned three of them.

Testimony in the court martial is expected to wrap up in a day or so.
