Senior Sgt. Mark Todd confirmed he shot Maj. Nadil Malik Hasan, the alleged Fort Hood gunman, after eyewitness accounts surfaced that contradicted reports of Sgt. Kimberly Munley taking down shooter.

During an appearance on CBS’ “The Early Show” Thursday, Todd said that after Munley was shot, he “drew [the gunman's] attention towards me and then he opened fire and then I neutralized him and secured him.”

The statement appears to confirm an eyewitness account in the New York Times that credits Todd with bringing down Hasan, but Todd was careful to use the term “we” in other references to the incident during his interview with “Early Show” co-host Harry Smith.

On Wednesday, Munley appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” alongside Todd and described the scene as “confusing and chaotic” but she remembers getting shot.
