Bronx-Lebanon Hospital attack

Bronx-Lebanon Hospital attack --- ===


June 30, 2017 Bronx-Lebanon Hospital attack  at around 2:45 PM EDT, a Nigerian born doctor Michael Bello opened fire at the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in the Bronx, New York City, United States, killing a doctor on the 17th floor and wounding six people on the 16th floor with an AR-15-type Semi-automatic Rifle before killing himself. The gunman's tactic mirrored those of a training scenario of a  terrorist gunman in a skyscraper like the Manila casino gunman. Firefighters were held back because the gunman was seen as the most immediate threat.

Alternative theory: Was he just a terrorist like Manila casio gunman who set fires but set up elaborate cover story of aggrieved doctor forced out of his job and made death threats? Why set fires and shoot multiple people if he was just trying to shoot one target?

Similar tactics as 36 killed by smoke after man claimed as `Islamic State gunman´ starts fire in casino  ...www.dailymail.co.uk Jun 1, 2017 - A gunman has stormed into a crowded Philippines casino and used petrol to set gambling tables on fire, creating clouds of smoke that killed at least 36 people, police said. The gunman, who has not yet been identified, targeted the casino at Resorts World Manila attacked was claimed by but not believed to be related to Islamic State terrorists.
The shooter was later identified as 45-year-old Nigerian-born Dr. Henry Michael Bello, a family physician formerly employed by the hospital.  He resigned from the hospital in 2015 after some sort of dispute, according to one law enforcement official, who said Bello used an AR-15 in the attack. Bello (born Henry Williams Obotetukudo[1]) had formerly worked for the hospital. He had resigned from the hospital amid a sexual harassment complaint two years prior. He was a graduate of Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica and was formerly a pharmacy technicianin California. He worked as a night shift doctor at the hospital while trying to be admitted into the family medical residency program.   Bello sent Dr. Lazala a threatening email after being fired. He took Friday off and was reportedly the target of the attack. Dr. Maureen Kwankam said she fired Bello after two years of employment. Kwankam further stated "We fired him because he was kind of crazy. He promised to come back and kill us then."

Perpetrator[edit]

Bello (born Henry Williams Obotetukudo[1]) had formerly worked for the hospital.[2] He had resigned from the hospital amid a sexual harassment complaint two years prior.[3] He was a graduate of Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica and was formerly a pharmacy technicianin California.[4] He worked as a night shift doctor at the hospital while trying to be admitted into the family medical residency program.

Incident[edit]

A doctor who was killed, Dr. Tracey Tam, was randomly targeted, according to Dr. Sridhar Chilimuri, the hospital chief. Six others (three doctors, two medical students and a patient) were injured. The most seriously wounded was a doctor shot in the knee and brain, who underwent several hours of surgery on-site and was sent to Mt. Sinai Hospital for more. The other two doctors were shot in the neck and abdomen, one student was shot in the hand and the patient had an unspecified minor injury.[5]
Dr. David Lazala, a graduate of the family medical residency program and current faculty member, told the Associated Press that he was one of the physicians training Bello, who sent Lazala a threatening email after being fired. He took Friday off and was reportedly the target of the attack. Dr. Maureen Kwankam said she fired Bello after two years of employment.[6] Kwankam further stated "We fired him because he was kind of crazy. He promised to come back and kill us then."[7]
Hours before the shooting, Bello sent an e-mail to the New York Daily News, making various accusations in regards to his firing, stating "First, I was told it was because I always kept to myself. Then it was because of an altercation with a nurse. Then I was told, it was because I threatened a colleague." Bello blamed a specific doctor for blocking his career progress and costing him $400,000.[8] The New York City Police Department said he committed suicide after barricading himself inside with a rifle and setting himself on fire.[9]
Tracy Tam, DO, a family medicine physician and graduate of Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, was killed. Justin Timperio, MD, a first year family medicine resident and a graduate of the American University of the Caribbean, was shot and sustained injuries to the liver, stomach, intestines, and lung. Oluwafunmike Ojewoye, MD, a second year family medicine resident and a graduate of Temple University School of Medicine sustained a neck gun shot wound. A gastroenterology fellow doing a consult sustained a hand gun shot wound.[clarification needed] Two medical students from Ross University of Dominica were shot, one to the head and knee. A patient was also injured and was listed in stable condition while the others were deceased or in critical condition. Timperio was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital, according to his father, Luciano Timperio, an oral surgeon from St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada who blamed the lack of medical school positions in Ontario for his son's injuries.[10][11][12][13][14]

It mirrored a siege on June 1 of the largest hotel-casino in the Philippines by an armed man carrying gasoline canisters. And it was similar to a recent training exercise: a scenario that New York police and fire officials had invented for a three-day tabletop drill just weeks earlier.  In the end, the onslaught at Bronx-Lebanon was the work of one man, a disgruntled former employee, who died in the assault along with one of his victims. Still, it provided a crucial trial run for the new antiterrorism tactics. first moments of the attack, Dr. Bello’s moves mimicked the threat officials faced at the tabletop exercise ...gunman, on the loose in a skyscraper, setting fires.
