A law enforcement official says the gunman who opened fire at a New York City hospital was a doctor who formerly worked there.

The official says Dr. Henry Bello walked into Bronx Lebanon Hospital at about 2:50 p.m. Friday with a rifle concealed in his lab coat and opened fire, killing at least one person and injuring six others. He then apparently killed himself.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Bello was listed on the hospital's website as a family medicine physician. It's not clear when he left the hospital. Calls there rang unanswered.
