US shooter kills doctor, commits suicide

IANS  |  Washington 

A gunman shot a doctor in the parking lot of a hospital in the US state of Ohio before killing himself, authorities said.

The shooting took place at around 2 p.m. on Monday when the victim, later identified as 59-year-old doctor George Seese, was shot at close range as he was walking to his car outside the Affinity Medical Centre in Massillon, reports Xinhua news agency.

The doctor, who was struck at least twice, died later in a hospital while the gunman was found dead near his vehicle.

According to the police, the incident appeared to be an attempted murder and suicide.

The shooter, Michael Wood, aged 50, targeted Seese specifically because the two men had a mutual love interest.
