A doctor who apparently harbored a longstanding grudge opened fire with an assault rifle at the New York City hospital where he used to work Friday, killing one and injuring several others before taking his own life, according to police sources.
In the wake of what New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called a "horrific" instance of what appeared to be workplace violence just before 3 p.m., the suspect, Dr. Henry Bello, who hid the AR-15 under his white lab coat, tried to set himself on fire and then shot himself in the head at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, the sources said.
"Our hearts go out to the family of the doctor who passed away," Mayor de Blasio said Friday, adding that the city stands in "solidarity" with those who were "fighting for their lives."

Too many times affirmative action hires turn out to be incompetent, and are fired. They have been led to believe that they are the bees knees and can’t accept finding out that they are not.
Solution: don’t hire people above their level of competence.

Dr. Henry Bello, who resigned after facing termination for sexual harassment, was named as the lone gunman who opened fire on doctors and medical students at Bronx’s Lebanon Hospital after hiding a rifle under a white lab coat.
The ex-employee had worked in family medicine and threatened to kill co-workers before he returned to the hospital and opened fire with an AR- 15 rifle inside the hospital, sending patients, doctors, and nurses scrambling for cover and barricading doors. At least one person, believed to be a female doctor, has died, and six people were shot overall.
“Gun!” shouted a doctor who spotted the rifle under Bello’s white lab coat, according to The New York Post.
Other news stories reported the name as Henry Bellow, but he’s listed as Dr. Henry Bello on the hospital’s website. NYPD wrote on Twitter that “an assault rifle was found nearby. The subject was wearing a white, medical type coat.”
The mass shooting unfolded at 173rd Street and Grand Concourse in the Mt. Eden section of the Bronx hospital, which is one of New York’s busiest. The carnage might have been even worse, but the injured fell inside a hospital equipped to treat them. “At least one doctor was being treated by people inside the hospital who had tied an emergency fire hose as a tourniquet,” according to The New York Times, which added that “police had described the gunman as a tall, thin man wearing a blue shirt and white lab coat. A police official said he had a long gun.”
“One doctor is dead and several doctors are fighting for their lives right now,” New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio said later.
Police said the 45-year-old Bello committed suicide in the hospital, after setting a fire in a nurse’s station with, according to The Daily Beast, a Gatorade bottle filled with gasoline.
A graphic photo has emerged of Bello lying dead on the hospital floor. You can see it below, but be aware that it’s disturbing.
