So, can you give me a definition of “terrorism”?

Looks like a nice guy! Why would he do it?

 

One doctor is dead and several are critically injured after a man dressed as a doctor opened fire at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York.

Several emergency workers are being described as heroes after trying to help – and they are now fighting for their lives.

Police confirmed five people were seriously injured, a sixth had gunshot wounds to his leg and a woman, a doctor, was dead as well as the gunman, who had reportedly killed himself.

CBS reported that the NYPD has identified the shooter as Dr Henry Bello, a former employee at Bronx Lebanon Hospital. According to a law enforcement official, the shooter was wearing a lab coat and had the rifle concealed inside it, AP reported.

Mayor Bill de Blasio told media it was a tragedy.

Part of a normal American doctor’s professional equipment?

“It was a horrific situation unfolding in place that people associate with care and comfort… But even in the midst of this horror there were many, many acts of heroism,” de Blasio said. He said first responders ran towards the danger.

“One doctor is dead; there are several doctors fighting for their lives right now.” He said a fire complicated the emergency response, because the gunman reportedly tried to set fire to himself.

“This was not an act of terrorism,” de Blasio said. “It was an isolated incident.”
