The man who shot and wounded a doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and then killed himself and his mother was distraught over news of his mother's condition, police said Thursday.
A man who became distraught as he was being briefed on his mother's condition by a surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital pulled a gun and shot the doctor Thursday, then killed his mother and himself in her room at the world-famous medical center, police said.
The gunman, identified as Paul Warren Pardus, 50, had been listening to the surgeon around midday when he "became emotionally distraught and reacted ... and was overwhelmed by the news of his mother's condition," said Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III.
Commissioner Bealefeld said he did not know what the woman was being treated for at Hopkins, a world-class institution widely known for its cancer research and treatment.
