Authorities: Doctor Shot Hospital Shooting Suspect
(Darby, PA) --
The man accused of killing one person and injuring a psychiatrist in a shooting at a Philadelphia-area medical center faces serious charges. Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan spoke today about the case against Richard Plotts.
According to Whelan, Richard Plotts appeared agitated when he entered the Dr. Lee Silverman's office in Darby yesterday. Plotts allegedly took out a gun and shot a caseworker in the head, killing her instantly. Silverman returned fire with his own pistol, hitting Plotts multiple times. Plotts is in stable condition and under sedation at a hospital. Whelan says Plotts will be arraigned as soon as he's capable of understanding the charges against him.
