Doctor kills 1, injures 6 in Bronx hospital shooting

A shooter identified as Dr. Henry Bello killed one person and injured six more when he attacked Bronx-Lebanon Hospital in New York City with an AR-15 rifle Friday afternoon. After his rampage, Bello committed suicide by setting himself on fire and shooting himself in the head.

The doctor was previously employed at the hospital but resigned amid accusations of sexual harassment about two years ago. In a letter emailed to New York's Daily News about two hours before his attack, Bello complained the hospital unfairly "terminated" his career, but he did not threaten violence.

Five of the six wounded remain in critical condition, and police investigation is ongoing.
