Doctor Had Gun, Wounded Hospital Shooter, Prosecutor Says

DARBY, Pa. - A doctor wounded by a patient in a deadly shooting Thursday afternoon at a suburban hospital campus in Darby, Pa. returned fire and wounded the patient, authorities said.

Investigators believe the doctor had his own gun and acted in self-defense, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said.

The patient, who had psychiatric problems, opened fire after entering the doctor's office with a caseworker Thursday afternoon, Whelan said. The female caseworker was killed. The doctor appears to have suffered only a graze wound and was expected to be released from treatment later in the day.

Just one more reason concealed carry saves lives. This could have been another mass shooting with several dead. But because a doctor was carrying a weapon lives were saved.

The doctor was able to stop the threat before more lives were lost. I bet there are a lot of people who were present that are grateful for that gun and for the doctor who so bravely used it, to prevent further loss of life.

That's why we need CCW for law abiding citizens. I don't give a F*k what you soft hearted Obama loving liberals think.

I'm surprised the hospital wasn't a gun free zone.
Nobody in there could call police because it was a cellphone free zone.

6:33 Any type of carry, of any type of firearm SHOULD be the law. I'm bummed the doctor didn't kill the dude, though... must have had a glawk.
