The Pennsylvania patient accused of killing his caseworker in a psychiatric center shooting carried dozens of bullets and he would have likely continued shooting if a doctor didnt fire back, officials said.
Richard Plotts, 49, is expected to be charged with murder for allegedly opening fire at Sister Marie Lenahan Wellness Center in Darby Thursday.
After he killed his caseworker, 53-year-old Theresa Hunt, and shot his psychiatrist, Lee Silverman, the wounded doctor fired back, stopping the attack, District Attorney Jack Whelan said in a Friday press conference.
Plotts had 39 more bullets on him. He intended a mass shooting, Whelan said.

How many cartridges did he have?
If you see posts of interest to Pennsylvanians, please ping me.
Thanks Kid Shelleen

So, “Armed citizen stops mass murder”?
But Democrats say this never happens.
Oh, yeah - they don’t count incidents like this one, because only one person was killed.
Selective, defective statistics.
I just wish that there was some sort of discernible pattern to these shootings...Maybe guns are bad...
None. He's still caught in the grip of the powder and primer shortage. I can't find VV3N37 or even Win 231 anywhere.
I’m down to my last pound of Unique.
Lacking a "sarc" tag, I can only conclude that your kindergarten teacher will notice you're missing any minute, now.
if I ever get down to 3900 rounds left I am in big do do.
My species comes from a solar system where the, ‘sarc’, tag is not required. Thanks for playing...
If the murderer had been successful,
the meme would have been “guns kill people.”
The gun-carrying doctor saved lives,
but the gun did not save lives.
The shooter is described as the “Pennsylvania patient”. Why dont they just call him the PA MENTAL patient? Yes yes its not PC.
Did you NEED a /sarc tag?
And what caliber were the bullets and cartridges, did he have all the loading supplies and equipment with him?
Okay, let me put on my democratic thinking hat....
2 cartridges per bullet, right? One for the top of the bullet and one for the bottom.
Using common core, I double the number of bullets and round it up. So 100??? Does this qualify me for a Masters Degree from the University of Wisconsin?
Three years after that, he robbed a Delaware bank, she said. He served six years in prison for that offense.Why wasn't he immediately taken behind the courthouse and given a .577 Boxer round to the noggin after this shenanigan? Oh, right, because liberals wanted him to commit more crimes.
Time to ban 39 “bullet Clips”!
Armed citizens save lives.
Sure guns can be bad. If they don't shoot straight. If they jam during the ejection cycle. If the magazine doesn't stay locked in. You get the picture.
BTW, there is a pattern to these senseless shootings. Psychosis. Get to the bottom of that and you will erase most of these tragic headlines. Then all you have left to work on are the jihadis, the gangs in Chicago, and planned parenthood.
ABC news was in a rare pro-gun mood tonight, talking about how this doctor armed with a gun in a gun free zone stopped this killer.
Leftists hate it when they hear that guns saved lives..they would have preferred this had been a mass shooting with many killed, then they would have used it to preach their gun control stupidity
When someone starts an article by displaying their total gun ignorance I’m not even reading any more.
I think who ever wrote this has been watching way too many old westerns on TV...
Lee Silverman is a hero.
Maybe he had a percussion pistol using loose powder and balls instead of cartridges.
If psychos are going to "protest" gun-free zones by shooting everyone in sight, then we better not have gun-free zones. Thank goodness the doctor ignored (or got an exception to) the gun prohibition.
A good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun.
It’s a shame he didn’t try to reason with the poor perpetrator before resorting to violence. I’m sure that would of worked.
