Why They Say The TULSA Shooter Did It Will Make You…

On Thursday, Law enforcement said at a press conference that the gunman who killed four at a hospital in Tulsa, Okla., entered the building to target a doctor who he felt had not provided him adequate care for back surgery.

The patient called the clinic repeatedly complaining of pain and specifically targeted the doctor who performed the surgery, then killed himself as police arrived, Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin said.

Louis was armed with a rifle and a handgun and opened fire at an orthopedic office on the second floor of the hospital at around 5 pm local time Wednesday,

Physician, Dr. Preston Phillips was killed along with Dr. Stephanie Husen, receptionist Amanda Glenn and visitor William Love, police said. The attack occurred on the campus of Saint Francis Health System in Tulsa.

The chief identified the shooter as 45-year-old Michael Louis of Muskogee, Oklahoma.

Louis was armed with a rifle and a handgun and opened fire at an orthopedic office on the second floor of the hospital at around 5 pm local time.

More details of this tragic incident from The New York Post report:

A deranged gunman with a rifle and a handgun who killed four people at an Oklahoma medical building targeted a doctor who previously operated on him “and anyone who got in his way,” authorities said Thursday.

The gunman, identified as Michael Louis, opened fire at about 5 p.m. Wednesday at an orthopedic office on the second floor of the Natalie Medical Building at Saint Francis Health System in Tulsa, Police Chief Wendell Franklin told reporters at a press conference.

Louis, 45, of Muskogee, went to the hospital on May 19 for back surgery, which was performed by Dr. Preston Phillips. Louis was released on May 24, Franklin said.

Louis proceeded to call several times to complain of pain and sought additional treatment. He then saw Phillips on Tuesday and called the doctor’s office again on Wednesday seeking additional help, Franklin said.

About an hour before the shooting, Louis legally bought a semi-automatic AR-15-style rifle from a local gun store and purchased a semi-automatic handgun on May 29 from a local pawn shop, Franklin said.

Cops recovered dozens of spent shell casings from the shooting scene, as well as a letter penned by Louis that made it clear he intended to kill Phillips and “anyone who got in his way” following the surgery that he claimed had left him ailing, Franklin said.

He managed to get inside the facility via a second-floor garage, where he parked before he “worked his way into the building,” Franklin said.

Democratic leaders have amplified their calls for greater restrictions on guns since the Uvalde shooting, while Republicans are emphasizing more security at schools.

The divide mirrors a partisan split that has stymied action in Congress and many state capitols over how best to respond to a record-high number of gun-related deaths in the U.S.
