Gunman kills doctor, wounds six others in Bronx hospital rampageBy Laila Kearney and Melissa Fares NEW YORK (Reuters) – A doctor who lost his job at a New York City hospital opened fire with an assault rifle inside the building on Friday, killing another physician and wounding six other people before taking his own life in a burst of apparent workplace-related violence, officials said. The gunman, wearing a white medical lab coat, stalked two floors of the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, and apparently tried to set himself on fire, officials said. One physician was shot to death, and six other people were injured, five seriously, including one who was shot in the leg, Police Commissioner James O’Neill said at a news conference.
