What in the hell is going on around the country? Men are popping up left and right wanting to take hostages and kill people over, what seems to be, petty issues.

The hospital was on complete lockdown until they could discern exactly what was going on with the shooter. The doctor didn’t suffer any life threatening injuries, but certainly the gunman thought there would be serious repercussions for his actions. He seemed to reason that it would be better if he just killed himself…and he did.
