A disgruntled doctor, armed with an AR-15 rifle and wearing a lab coat, went on a rampage at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center killing a doctor and wounding six other people before setting himself on fire and shooting himself in the head, according to an article on the New York Times website.
The doctor, who once worked at the hospital, quit after being accused of sexual harassment, officials said.
Police officials said it was believed the attacker sneaked the rifle into the hospital under his lab coat.
As the situation developed, emergency workers were at first prevented from entering the building. Eventually, the police escorted into the building a group of emergency workers wearing armor, as the gunman was still being sought.
