Shooting at Boston Hospital Left One Dead and One in Critical Condition

A cardiologist was shot Tuesday morning at Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in Boston after a gunman entered the building searching for the doctor specifically by name.

The shooting took place on the second floor of the hospital on the Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center. The doctor, whose identity still has not been released, was shot in a foyer between the waiting area and the examining area, and authorities said he was quickly taken to an emergency room.

The hospital made an announcement over the PA system, but did not disclose all the details to those in the hospital. One witnessed said that the scene was chaotic as people were trying to evacuate. It was also reported that police were called and arrived almost instantaneously.

Commissioner William Evans said at a news conference at the hospital that, “He was targeted and that reason right now is unclear. There was something in the past that upset this guy.”

It is still unsure of the motives behind the attack, but as Evan’s points out the two must have some sort of history with each other.

After the shooting, another man was found dead in an examining room, but the shot that killed him looked self-induced, authorities say his description matches that of the shooter, and they believe it was indeed him.

Evans stated, “The doctor is not the only victim here. I’m sure he [the shooter] has some loved ones.” They are investigating why the two may have had problems with each other and why the altercation resulted in this type of scene.
