— The Associated Press and CBS2, citing law enforcement sources, reported that Bello resigned from the hospital in 2015 amid sexual harassment allegations against him. It’s unclear what those claims involved.

— The AP also obtained police reports that detailed Bello’s previous arrests: in 2004 after being accused of grabbing a woman and in 2009 after two women accused him of trying to look up their skirts with a mirror. (The 2004 arrest resulted in a felony abuse charge that was dismissed after Bello pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unlawful imprisonment, The New York Times reported.


One person is dead and several others injured after a former employee opened fire Friday at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York City. The shooter is being reported as Dr. Henry Bello, 45. Hiding his M-16 type rifle underneath his white lab coat, he began his rampage at 3 p.m. on the 16th and 17th floors. Bello later commited suicide.

The New York Times reports that at least three of the shooting victims are doctors with the hospital. One of the injured doctors was treated by tying an emergency fire hose into a makeshift tourniquet, according to the paper.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has been briefed by the NYPD.
