Nigerian Doctor Involved In Mass Shooting In New York. by liberalchick(f): 1:15am On Jul 01, 2017
A doctor with a rifle hidden under a lab coat has shot dead a female physician and seriously wounded six other doctors before trying to set himself on fire and turning the gun on himself at a Bronx hospital.

Dr Henry Bello, a family physician, opened fire at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital where he used to work at about 2.45pm on Friday.

The 45-year-old gunman was hiding a high-powered assault rifle under his white medical coat and had his ID card on him when he started the shooting spree on the 16th and 17th floors of the hospital, police sources say.

Police Commissioner James O'Neill confirmed that the shooter died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the building.

The shooter had tried to set himself on fire prior to fatally shooting himself. He staggered, bleeding, into a hallway where he collapsed and died with the rifle at his side.

The body of the female victim, believed to be a doctor, was found next to the shooter on the 17th floor. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Five of the victims were seriously injured in the shooting ramBello had been a family medicine physician at the hospital. Law enforcement officials say he was allowed to resign from the hospital in 2015 amid sexual harassment allegations. The details of the allegations were not immediately clear.

CBS New York reported that Bello was fired two years ago for harassing an employee. He reportedly went to the hospital to find the employee before opening fire on his former colleagues.

Witness Dione Morales, who has been a patient at the hospital for 17 years, told CBS New York the shooter had threatened to kill people back when he was fired.

'He was let go because I guess they figured he was unstable. He said he was going to do this,' she said. 'He said he was going to kill people, two years ago when he was let go - two years... and now look what happened.'

Details about Bello's criminal past emerged following the deadly shooting.

In unrelated cases, the doctor had been arrested in 2004 on a charge of sexual abuse after a 23-year-old woman told police Bello grabbed her, lifted her up and carried her off, saying, 'you're coming with me.' He was arrested again in 2009 on a charge of unlawful surveillance, after two different women reported he was trying to look up their skirts with a mirror.

According to New York State Education Department records, Bello had a limited permit to practice as an international medical graduate to gain experience in order to be licensed. The permit was issued on July 1, 2014, and expired last year on the same day.

A former colleague described Bello as a problematic employee.

Bello 'was very aggressive, talking loudly, threatening people. All the time he was a problem,' said Dr. David Lazala, a family medicine doctor who said he trained Bello at Bronx Lebanon.

He said Bello, who worked at night as a doctor, sent him a threatening email after Bello was fired.




'The shooter killed himself but not before doing horrible damage. Our hearts go out to the family of the doctor who passed away.

'This was a horrific situation unfolding in a place associated with care and comfort.'

Authorities described a chaotic scene at Bronx Lebanon Hospital as gunfire erupted, spreading terror throughout the hospital as employees locked themselves inside rooms and patients feared for their lives.

Shortly after receiving a 911 call about an active shooter, police officers went floor by floor, their guns drawn, looking for the gunman.

An FDNY official told the New York Times at least three of the shooting victims were doctors.

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

Police described the suspect in a radio transmission as a tall, thin man in a blue shirt and a white lab coat.

It will not be far from being let down by a woman.

Who even gave mankind the idea that a human being can forever be sexually faithful to another human being?

Until we realize that the animal instinct to explore verieties is in our nature, senseless things done about love and sex won't stop.
