Brigham & Women’s president `heartbroken’ by surgeon’s murder.

BOSTON (AP) — Administrators and staff at a leading Boston hospital are mourning the death of a cardiac surgeon who was fatally shot at the hospital by a man who then killed himself. One person was shot and a suspect was captured after gunfire broke out Tuesday morning at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston on Tuesday morning. The suspect was caught on the second floor of the Shapiro Building, the hospital’s cardiovascular wing, according to Adam Gaffin, a Boston blogger at the website Universal Hub. Walsh said he was “deeply saddened” by Davidson’s death. “This tragedy is the result of a senseless act of violence that has no place in our City,” he said in a statement early Wednesday. Evans said earlier Tuesday that police were talking to witnesses, “but it’s leading us to believe there was something in the past that upset this guy, that made him go in and look for this particular doctor.” Police and hospital officials commended the fast response by police and hospital staff, who they said had been trained to respond to an “active shooter” situation.

He stated at the time, “There is no better way to commemorate a birthday, run the marathon to achieve a personal goal and, in the process, support Team Brigham and its mission to help so many people.” He was part of the remarkable team that performed the hospital’s first tricuspid “valve-in-valve” procedure and was involved in establishing the hybrid OR at BWH, once of the most advanced operating rooms in the country. Let us honor our dear colleague’s memory and legacy by treating each other with kindness and providing the best possible care to those who come to us in need.
