DARBY, Pa. (AP) — A man who authorities say fatally shot a caseworker at a hospital complex near Philadelphia and was then shot by his psychiatrist remains listed in critical condition.
A spokeswoman for the Delaware County district attorney's office says 49-year-old Richard Plotts is expected to be arraigned on murder charges Friday at his hospital bedside.
Authorities are trying to determine more about the relationship between Dr. Lee Silverman and Plotts, including whether the doctor had reason to fear him and why he had a gun.
The shooting occurred Thursday at a wellness center at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby. Silverman suffered a minor wound.
The hospital said its policy bars anyone but on-duty law enforcement officers from bringing a weapon on to its campus.
