There's no question he will be tried via court martial under the UCMJ. He was an active duty service member who killed other active duty service members on a US military base within territory of the United States. I supose the state of Texas could make a claim for jurisdiction, but they'd lose.
There will clearly be other investigations as well but Hasan himself will be dealt with by court martial.http://www.time.com/time/nation/article ... 95,00.html
