Armed Man Kills Himself at Hospital

An armed man shot at cars, threatened patients and beat several nurses before killing himself at a Daytona Beach hospital Sunday. Deltona’s Jonathan Rodriguez-Jeff, 22, crashed his car through the hospital gate and used a 12-gauge shotgun to shoot out a glass door at the hospital’s Professional Building, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.  He went to the second floor, where he hit two nurses with the shotgun and threatened several patients before shooting himself while in a patient’s room. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
