Hos­pi­tal gun­man was look­ing for col­league

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

The doc­tor who opened fire at a New York hos­pi­tal Fri­day was search­ing for a col­league whom he blamed for de­rail­ing his ca­reer, au­thor­i­ties said Satur­day. When that per­son wasn’t there, the gun­man be­gan shoot­ing any­way, killing a doc­tor who was cov­er­ing a shift as a fa­vor.

The new de­tails of Henry Bello’s ram­page emerged along with an email rant against col­leagues he blamed for forc­ing him to re­sign from Bronx Le­banon Hos­pi­tal amid sex­ual ha­rass­ment al­le­ga­tions two years ago. The email was sent to the New York Daily News just two hours be­fore the shoot­ing Fri­day af­ter­noon that left six other peo­ple wounded and Bello dead from a self-in­flicted gun­shot.

For­mer col­leagues said that when Bello was forced out in 2015 he warned that he would re­turn some­day to kill them.

It was not clear if Bello knew Tracy Sin-Yee Tam, 32, the doc­tor who died in the shoot­ing.

One vic­tim was in crit­i­cal con­di­tion Satur­day, and the rest were sta­ble, of­fi­cials said.
