A young doctor was gunned down by an ex colleague earlier this week right in front of his pregnant wife, reports a New York Criminal Lawyer. The motivation for the crime appear to have been an argument from some years prior, when the doctor and his former colleague clashed over an oversight at the hospital. According to the New York Criminal Lawyer, the gunman had left his post in the intensive care unit at the hospital and could not be found for a number of hours. The victim confronted him, possibly even publicly, which may have caused him to lose his job.
The attack took place in front of the victim’s home at roughly 8 a.m. The gunman ambushed the doctor and fired about five or six times. He then opened fire on the victim’s pregnant wife, although he was not able to injure her. The couple’s toddler son was inside at the time and was unhurt. Neighbors did tell a New York Criminal Lawyer that they saw the gunman’s vehicle, but had assumed that it was simply a delivery vehicle. The gunman has been arrested and charged with murder, attempted murder, and a firearms charge. He is currently being held on a $2 million bond.
