A law enforcement official says the gunman who opened fire at a New York City hospital was a doctor who formerly worked there.

The official says Dr. Henry Bello walked into Bronx Lebanon Hospital at about 2:50 p.m. Friday with a rifle concealed in his lab coat and opened fire, killing at least one person and injuring six others. He then apparently killed himself.
