The facts took place Saturday in the Dallas Methodist Medical Center. The police shot the suspect who was injured and placed under arrest warrant.
The hospital said it was “devastated” by the loss of two staff members. According to the police, there is no longer any danger for patients or employees of the healthcare infrastructure. The suspect’s motive remains to be elucidated. He was transported to another hospital without the severity of his injuries being specified, according to the AP news agency.
The incident is reminiscent of another tragedy that occurred in June. A man then opened fire in a hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and killed four people, including the surgeon who had operated on him. The killer then turned the gun on himself.
