Rifle-wielding man shoots 2, kills 1 at Bronx Lebanon Hospital

Hellbent on revenge and armed with an assault rifle, a former Bronx-Lebanon Hospital physician wearing a white lab coat opened fire Friday inside the medical center — killing one doctor and injuring six other people before killing himself, authorities said.

The shooter, Dr. Henry Bello, 45, had vowed to get back at his former co-workers more than two years ago shortly before he was forced to resign over accusations of sexual harassment.

“We fired him because he was kind of crazy,” Dr. Maureen Kwankam, 50, who was just steps away from Bello’s bloody rampage, told the Daily News.

“He promised to come back and kill us then.”

The carnage began about 2:45 p.m. when Bello — wearing the lab coat to cloak his AR-15 — fired at his former colleagues on the hospital’s 16th floor.

With cops closing in, Bello’s shooting spree ended one floor above — after he turned the weapon on himself, police said.


Henry Bello is the suspect at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital shooting.


Bello had also tried to start a fire at the nurses’ station on the 16th floor, but the hospital’s sprinkler system put out the small blaze.
