Bronx Hospital Rampage


A former employee of a New York City hospital opened fire with an assault rifle inside the building on Friday (June 30), killing one doctor and wounding six other people before fatally shooting himself in a burst of violence that appeared to be workplace related, officials said.

The assailant, wearing a white, medical-style lab coat and armed with an assault rifle, stalked the 16th and 17th floors of the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Centre, and apparently tried to set himself on fire at one point, they said.

Police who swarmed the building found him dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a search.

One physician was shot to death in the course of the bloodshed, and six other people were injured, five seriously, including one who suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.
