Today’s shooting at my med school hospital in Dayton, OH didn’t even make national news because it was overshadowed by another shooting at another hospital in Tulsa, OK.

According to Franklin, the gunman, Michael Louis, who was also discovered dead, fatally shot Dr. Preston Phillips, Dr. Stephanie Husen, Amanda Green, and William Loving in a medical facility on the grounds of Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa.
According to Franklin, Louis underwent back surgery on May 19 by Phillips and then called multiple times over several days complaining of discomfort and demanding extra therapy.
Louis saw Phillips for medication on Tuesday and phoned Phillips facility again on Wednesday before the shooting, complaining of back discomfort and needing extra assistance, according to Franklin.
Following the shooting, authorities discovered a note on Louis that made it apparent that he came in with the aim of killing Dr. Phillips and everyone who stepped in his way, Franklin lamented.
