John Madore Nh shooter Obituary – Death: gunman who killed guard at psychiatric hospital
The individual responsible for the shooting incident at a psychiatric hospital in the US, leading to the unfortunate death of a security guard, has been identified as John Madore, aged 33. The incident unfolded at New Hampshire Hospital, where Madore entered the front lobby on Friday night and opened fire. Early reports indicated “multiple victims,” prompting a rapid police response.
John Fomella, the Attorney General of New Hampshire, confirmed on Saturday that Madore fatally shot Bradley Haas, aged 63, before being neutralized by a police officer. Despite resuscitation efforts, Mr. Haas could not be saved. All patients at the 185-bed hospital in Concord, the state capital, were confirmed safe.
Mr. Fomella acknowledged the courageous actions of Mr. Haas, who sacrificed his life to protect others. Madore used a 9mm pistol in the attack, and investigators later discovered an AR-style rifle, a tactical vest, and ammunition supplies in a truck at the hospital’s parking lot.
Bradley Haas, a former police chief with 28 years of service, had retired in 2008 and dedicated decades to the Franklin Police Department. The tragic incident underscores the ongoing challenges faced by medical centers in the US regarding violence.
This shooting follows a recent incident in neighboring Maine, where 18 people lost their lives and 13 others were injured. New Hampshire Hospital serves as the sole state-run psychiatric facility for adults in the state, emphasizing the need for enhanced security measures in healthcare institutions across the country.
