Disgruntled ex-doctor kills 1 female Doctor, wounds 6 ex-colleagues and kills himself

A disgruntled doctor, Dr Henry Bello, a family physician who was fired from his job  at a Bronx hospital in 2015, hid a high powered rifle under a lab coat and had his ID with him when he walked into the hospital and started a shooting spree on  the 16th and 17th floors of the hospital, police sources say. He shot dead a female physician and seriously wounded six other doctors before setting himself on fire and shooting himself.


Dr. Bello opened fire at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital where he used to work at about 2.45pm on Friday.
Police Commissioner James O'Neill confirmed that the 45 year old 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. He staggered, bleeding, into a hallway where he collapsed and died with the rifle at his side. The body of the female victim, believed to be a doctor, was found next to him 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.
Law enforcement officials say Bello was allowed to resign from the hospital in 2015 amid sexual harassment allegations.
CBS New York reported that Bello was fired two years ago for harassing an employee. He reportedly went to the hospital to find the employee before opening fire on his former colleagues.
Witness Dione Morales, who has been a patient at the hospital for 17 years, told CBS New York the shooter had threatened to kill people back when he was fired.
'He was let go because I guess they figured he was unstable. He said he was going to do this,' she said. 'He said he was going to kill people, two years ago when he was let go - two years... and now look what happened.' 

In unrelated cases, Bello had been arrested in 2004 on a charge of sexual abuse after a 23-year-old woman told police Bello grabbed her, lifted her up and carried her off, saying, 'you're coming with me.' He was arrested again in 2009 on a charge of unlawful surveillance, after two different women reported he was trying to look up their skirts with a mirror.

According to New York State Education Department records, Bello had a limited permit to practice as an international medical graduate to gain experience in order to be licensed. The permit was issued on July 1, 2014, and expired last year on the same day.
A former colleague described Bello as a problematic employee. Bello 'was very aggressive, talking loudly, threatening people. All the time he was a problem,' said Dr. David Lazala, a family medicine doctor who said he trained Bello at Bronx Lebanon. He said Bello, who worked at night as a doctor, sent him a threatening email after Bello was fired.

A sick doctor. What an irony. He had been showing signs all along and he even said he was going to kill people after he was fired.

Hope he thot abt life after death. This is sad. Hmmmm his revenge might be base something relating to him being black which was very easy for them to let him go. Period

I keep on saying it, if u are black and a resident in a foreign land. You ve to build up Business back home. Dr Bello was fired as a result of racism. He saw a Foreign land as his home. He was not happy the way they twisted everything against him! Please, Africans abroad should get ready for a backup plan. Racism is real. Blacks are treated as SHIT overseas. Many africans has lost their License to practice their profession. OYIGBO LAND IS NOT HEAVEN! I am suffering from Depression and Loneliness here. You are an island of your own!

The system failed the doctor and led to this unfortunate event. Where I work when doctors are sensed to be mentally unstable they are not fired, they are offered psychological evaluation and help. Doctors go through a lot, lawsuits, loss of patients, assault etc so they need as much help as possible.

The system failed him and the victims period!

What did his Co-workers do to set him off? The work ethics in America is whack sometimes. Whatever the case is, it's a pity all round. He could have been on drugs combined with all the emotions weighing him down. Sad.

his life was meaningless to him so he could easily commit suicide. it is the woman that he killed that is the problem. the hospital should have had better security or

metal detector that would have prevented him from entering with a gun as big as a rifle. mental illness is no excuse for murder.

I get so upset at black folks always pulling the race card & acting as victims. Its quiet obvious that the doctor had a mental illness. Did you read the rest of the story about his previous arrests? Jeezz!!! Racism is real but in this case it is not a big factor.

Nigerian is far much worse, therefore you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. Hence the frustration.

Why am I the only one thinking he took behavior that is accepted in Nigeria and applied it in the United States and it became a misapplication? In Nigeria, when you grab a woman, nothing happens to you. In fact you get fist pumps. When you talk sexually to unknown women, it is not considered flattering in he US. In Nigeria, the woman will smile unless she is a holy ghost agent. This man is a victim of being raised as a male in Nigeria.

So you are just going to ignore the sexual harrassment allegations as the reason and his history of sexual assault as the reason he was fired. Reading comprehension is important!!

So unfortunate.they turned things against him and nobody was ready to hear him out.then he became frustrated.but what he has done is really bad.he couldn't see himself coming down; talk less of picking himself up again.
