Fort Hood Sgt. Kimberly Munley has been credited with stopping Thursday's deadly rampage at Fort Hood by shooting the alleged gunman four times and taking wounds of her own.

Munley is a civilian police officer at Ft. Hood and a member of American Federation of Government Employee's Local 1920. AFGE is the largest federal employees union in the country.

“Sgt. Munley acted with great heroism, yesterday, as she and her partner were the first to respond to calls for help during the shooting rampage at Ft. Hood,” AFGE President John Gage said in a statement. “As a part its family, we offer our thoughts, our prayers, our support and our strength to our brave soldiers and their families, and our brothers and sisters, who are affected by this senseless and pointless tragedy."

The union represents 1,700 civilian Defense Department employees at the base, according to spokesman Michael Victorian. The union does not know if any of its members are among Thursday's victims.
