MIDDLETOWN, Penn. -- A police officer is dead after a man grabbed a police pistol and opened fire in a hospital Thursday evening, police said.


Police said the shootings took place at St. Mary Medical Center in the 1200 block of Langhorne-Newton Road at about 6:30 p.m.

Two Newtown Borough police officers had arrested 38-year-old Robert Flor on suspicion of drunken driving and taken him to the hospital for blood and urine testing. As hospital officials were about to conduct the tests, Flor, whose handcuffs had been removed, grabbed Officer James Warunek's gun and shot both officers and a hospital employee before fleeing to the garage roof, police said.

Police said the man grabbed the gun and started shooting so quickly that the other officer, Brian Gregg, did not have a chance to pull his gun.

"After firing five shots from the officer?s weapon, he fled the emergency room. He was chased from the emergency room by another hospital employee. He was ultimately apprehended on the upper floor of the garage," Bucks County District Attorney Diane Gibbons said.

Gregg, who has been working for the Newtown Borough Police Department for one year, died. Warunek, who also has one year on the job, is in good condition.

Flor is in the Bucks County Jail without bond and faces charges of murder and attempted murder.

He has a lot bigger problems than a DUI now.

Guess he was sober enough to shoot straight.

Fry the cop killer.
Here's hoping the other officer and victim heal quickly and completely.
