A man turned a gun on himself after police claim he shot dead a doctor who wouldn't prescribe his wife opioids.
Michael Jarvis, 48, gunned down Dr Todd Graham, 56, in what Indiana officials are describing as a targeted attack on Wednesday.
Jarvis allegedly became upset when Graham wouldn't prescribe his wife opioid painkillers and then later returned to St Joseph Rehabilitation Institute in Mishawaka.
During the confrontation in the center's parking lot, Jarvis shot Graham twice in the head before fleeing the scene and turning the gun on himself, police said.
The incident took place on Wednesday afternoon after Jarvis and his wife Petra visited Graham at the medical center, reported the South Bend Tribune.
Petra was reportedly a new patient of Graham's and took Jarvis with her to the appointment, looking for a remedy for her pain.
Graham allegedly informed the couple that although Petra did suffer from pain he would not prescribe an opioid painkiller.
