Doctor Takes out Hospital Shooter

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/doctor-h...osecutor-says/

Quote:
DARBY, Pa. - A doctor wounded by a patient in a deadly shooting Thursday afternoon at a suburban hospital campus in Darby, Pa. returned fire and wounded the patient, authorities said.

Investigators believe the doctor had his own gun and acted in self-defense, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said.

The patient, who had psychiatric problems, opened fire after entering the doctor's office with a caseworker Thursday afternoon, Whelan said. The female caseworker was killed. The doctor appears to have suffered only a graze wound and was expected to be released from treatment later in the day.

Authorities have not publicly identified the gunman or his two victims. CBS Philly reports Whalen said the gunman was shot three times. Both the doctor and the suspect were taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for treatment, according to the station.

The shootings occurred on the third floor of a wellness center attached to Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, just southwest of Philadelphia. The center, which does not have metal detectors, is attached to the hospital by a pedestrian bridge.

Just what led to the shooting was unknown, Whalen said. Two guns were recovered, and the shooting was still being investigated.

"The scene is secure. Everyone is safe," Whelan told a late afternoon news conference.

The 213-bed teaching hospital is part of the Mercy Health System, a large Catholic health care network serving the region.

Yeah. Hopefully it'll turn out similarly to when a CHL holder shoots someone in a no-carry zone. "You shouldn't have been carrying, but good job." I heard on the radio this morning that he's facing termination, but I haven't really dug around to find that printed in a news article.

I have a hard time with the justification of no carry zones. (This statement is not meant to imply in any way that I choose to ignore them.) They obviously don't work for the guys who shouldn't be carrying guns to begin with. It sucks for the doctor as I suppose he will now face possible penalties if he was, in fact, carrying illegally, but I guess at least he can justify why it was (apparently) necessary.

He'll get fired and probably sued. Can't have people protecting themselves and others, now can we?

Dunno about sued, just because he broke hospital rules maybe even state rules, the shooting was justified.

And there's the defense. He already killed 1 person

Even if it was against state law, I wonder if it is defense to prosecution since he can prove his actions prevented his death.

That's what I was thinking. I highly doubt there is any regret there.

Doubt he'll be charged criminally but he could definitely lose his job.

Well, well. Not only does the good doctor get to keep his job, the hospital thanked him for his actions.

Quote:
We are thankful for the swift action of Dr. Lee Silverman, Dr. Jeffrey Dekret, John D’Alonzo and the other colleagues and visitors who took brave and difficult action during yesterday’s tragic event. We extend our condolences to Theresa Hunt’s family, and we are praying for Dr. Silverman’s speedy recovery. We look forward to Dr. Silverman’s return to serving patients at our hospital. We will do all we can to support the victims during this difficult time.

We continue to work with the Delaware County authorities to understand fully the details of the event. We are reviewing our policies and procedures to ensure a safe environment. We are committed to serving as a compassionate and healing presence in our communities, and we are grateful for the outpouring of community support

That statement could have also been written in that manor to remove or lessen liability.
