Doyestuck, PA—In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a worker in a Hazmat suit entered the Doystuck Hospital.
The worker was able to retrieve a firearm and was later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, police said.
According to the police report, the worker claimed he was not a threat and that he was just doing his job, but investigators found evidence he was carrying a concealed weapon and had a history of mental health issues.
The man was later released on a $2,500 bond.
This comes after a week in which the Dohlin hospital experienced a series of deadly incidents.
Earlier this month, an employee at the Dohais health center was found dead from an apparent suicide.
Earlier in the month, three people died and four were injured after a patient accidentally pulled out a gun and opened fire on the hospital’s security guard.
In the weeks leading up to Monday, the hospital had at least two deadly incidents involving employees, according to the local news.
The first happened on Sunday night, when the hospital was under lockdown after a person who was not identified tried to open fire on a group of patients.
The second incident occurred when a patient tried to steal a woman’s purse from a security guard, according the local paper.
