A doctor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston was shot on Tuesday after an unnamed shooter asked for the physician.
The suspect shot the doctor on the second floor of the hospital, and was later found by police in an examination room with a wound which may have been self-inflicted. According to ABC News, the police do not think the shooter was a current patient. The doctor sustained life threatening injuries and is in serious condition.
The doctor, whose identity remains undisclosed was shot in the Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center at the hospital.
The police had received a 911 call about the shooting around 11 a.m. “Situation under control,” the Boston Police Department said on its official Twitter feed.
State Police said in a tweet they were assisting Boston police in a “reported shooting” but there was no further information available before noon on Tuesday.
