Gunman, Henry Bello attacks New York Hospital

A female doctor was confirmed dead while at least five other hospital staffers were wounded after a gunman identified as doctor Henry Michael Bello, a former employee at the hospital, stormed Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center on Friday, gunning down at least the six staffers before taking his own life, a senior law enforcement officials revealed.
45-year-old Henry Bello was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the 17th floor after a two-story shooting rampage that left one victim, believed to be a female doctor, according to a senior law enforcement official, dead and five others wounded. The injured are also believed to be hospital staffers, senior law enforcement officials say.  Sources told NBC 4 New York that a preliminary investigation revealed Bello resigned from the hospital in 2015 in lieu of termination.

A New York State licensing website does not reveal any disciplinary history. Police are investigating the shooting as a case of workplace violence and former NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said it does not appear to be terror-related.
