New York hospital shooting rampage killed 1, injured 7

NEW YORK CITY, New York — Authorities said a doctor who was forced out from a New York hospital after being accused of sexual harassment reportedly shot seven people Friday at the facility, killing a female doctor and leaving several doctors wounded.

Dr. Henry Bello reportedly shot himself dead after trying to set himself on fire at Bronx Lebanon Hospital.

Officials said the bleeding gunman reportedly staggered into a hallway where he collapsed and died with the rifle at his side.

Officials reportedly identified the shooter as the 45-year-old Bello, who was described on the hospital website as a family medicine physician.

Officials said Bello used an AR-15 in the attack on the 16th and 17th floors.

Officials said Bello was allowed to resign from the hospital in 2015 amid sexual harassment allegations, though they didn’t know the details of the allegations.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the still-unfolding investigation.

Police Commissioner James O’Neill said one female doctor was killed Friday and six other people were wounded, five of them seriously. The patients were treated in the emergency room at Bronx Lebanon.

A surgeon at the hospital told the AP that all six victims were in critical condition, but they were expected to survive. He said the victims largely suffered gunshot wounds to the head, chest and abdomen.

Shortly after receiving a 911 call about an active shooter, police went floor by floor looking for the gunman, with their guns drawn. They later learned he was dead inside the building.

Officials said Bello may have doused himself with an accelerant like gasoline and tried to set himself ablaze before shooting himself. Sprinklers extinguished the fire.

The 120-year-old hospital is one of the busiest emergency rooms in New York City, with nearly 1,000 beds. In 2011, two people were shot at Bronx Lebanon in a gang-related attack.
