A Break Up Could Be Linked To The Mercy Hospital Shootings, Today’s Terrible Tuesday On The Roads

A break up could be linked to the Mercy Hospital shootings…

Detectives are looking into reports that a broken engagement between the gunman and one of his victims may have led to yesterday’s shooting at Mercy Hospital. Witnesses say the gunman first shot a female emergency room Doctor in the parking lot of the Hospital after an argument.

One person said that the gunman who was dressed in all black shot the Doctor several times in the chest and then stood over her and shot her three more times. He reportedly then walked into the hospital and began shooting at random.

A police officer and two hospital workers were among those shot and killed. Police arrived on the scene quickly. The gunman was shot and killed but it is unclear if he was killed by police or if his injuries were self-inflicted.
