Violence Erupts at Texas Hospital Where Nurse Was Killed and Four Others Were Wounded

Posted Nov 26 2013 11:43pm

The video is a family below who witnessed the rampage as they were there taking their daughter in for surgery.  The poor nurse just came around the corner to see what was happening imageand that’s when she was stabbed.  It was not a a gun this time, he did all his damage with a knife. 

The nurse who was killed 57 years old and had worked at the hospital for many years.  The actual scene took place in the ambulatory surgical center and one survivor remains in critical condition.  The man with the knife was  the son of a patient at the center.  From the video they stated there was a lot of pushing and shoving going on before all realized he was going around stabbing people.  Police handcuffed and had him in custody quickly upon their arrival.  BD 

A devoted nurse is dead and four other people are wounded after an attack at the Ambulatory Surgery Center at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview on Tuesday morning at around 7 a.m.

Police responded to the scene within minutes after receiving calls about stabbings occurring in the surgery center, and though the suspect fled the scene of the stabbings, they were able to apprehend him just blocks away within a very short time.

The suspect, identified as Kyron Rayshaun Templeton, 22, of Longview, fled but was taken into custody a short while later on Sixth Street in Longview. There was a scuffle during his arrest, but no officers were injured. He is now charged with murder and four counts of aggravated assault. He is being held on $2.6 million bond.

One East Texas family arrived at Good Shepherd around 5:30 Tuesday morning because their six-year-old daughter was scheduled for surgery. They say everything was running smoothly until about 7 a.m., when they witnessed a young man, now identified as Templeton, stab two people just feet away from where they were standing.
