In another shooting in the United States, a gunman killed four people at a hospital in Tulsa, according to media reports. In the Oklahoma State incident, the shooter murdered his surgeon along with others. He appears to have blamed the doctor for pain after back surgery, police said on Thursday. The shooter, who was identified as Michael Louis, was from Muskogee, Oklahoma, reports said. He had stormed Saint Francis Hospital in the city of Tulsa with a rifle and a handgun on Wednesday. This is one of the last mass shootings in the United States recently.
At the hospital, the 45-year-old shooter was recently operated on by surgeon Preston Phillips. Louis had also called the facility complaining of regular back pain, Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin said at a press briefing.

Police also found “a letter on the suspect, which made it clear that he had come with the intention of killing Dr. Phillips and anyone who got in his way. He blamed Dr. Phillips for the lingering pain after operation,” Franklin said.
