BREAKING NEWS: Disgruntled former doctor is found dead after going on a shooting spree at Bronx hospital, killing a woman and wounding others with an assault rifle hidden under his lab coat

A doctor shot dead a woman and seriously wounded six other former colleagues before trying to set himself on fire and turning the gun on himself at Bronx Lebanon Hospital this afternoon. Dr Henry Bello, a family physician, started shooting at his old co-workers while dressed as a physician at around 2.45pm at the medical center in the Morris Heights section of The Bronx. The 45-year-old gunman was hiding a high-powered assault rifle under his lab coat and had his ID card on him before the attack on the 16th floor of the hospital, police sources say. Police Commissioner James O'Neill confirmed that the shooter died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the building. The shooter had tried to set himself on fire prior to fatally shooting himself. The body of the female victim, believed to be a doctor, was found next to the shooter on the 17th floor. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Five of the victims were seriously injured in the shooting rampage and one victim is being treated for a gunshot wound to their leg.
