3 Doctors Shot in NYC Hospital
Quote:3 Doctors Shot Inside Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center


At least three doctors were shot inside Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in the Mount Hope neighborhood of the Bronx on Friday afternoon, according to a Fire Department official.

Shortly before 4 p.m., J. Peter Donald, the chief spokesman for the New York City Police Department, said that the shooter was dead.

The condition of the doctors was not known, according to the Fire Department official. The police had not yet secured the area, preventing emergency medical workers from entering the hospital at 1650 Grand Concourse. It was unclear if there were more victims.

In a radio transmission, police had described the gunman as a tall, thin man wearing a blue shirt and white lab coat. A police official said he was armed with a long gun.

Other news sites say the gun was an M16. Fox News Channel, where I first heard this news, said the shooter was a doctor who had been fired. Reports vary, 4-6 people injured. Sounds like one of those disgruntled former employee acts of violence. Some news sites say the gunman shot himself after shooting the others. Probably not terrorism, per se.
I'd have to call that one workplace violence.
