GA - 3 killed in shooting at hospital where gunman's mom died, 27 March 2008
A retired teacher bearing a grudge over his mother's medical treatment at the hospital where she died fatally shot one of her nurses and another employee Thursday, then killed a man outside before police shot him, authorities said.
Charles Johnston, 63, is being charged with three counts of murder and will be turned over to police after an overnight stay in another hospital, where he was treated for a shoulder wound, Police Chief Ricky Boren said.

From May 2009:
Charles Johnston, the Doctors Hospital gunman who killed three men on March 27, 2008, pleaded guilty Thursday to the murders and was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences.
Johnston, 64, remained quiet for most of the 1 1/2 hour proceeding, shaking his head at times as the prosecutor recited the facts about the deaths of Peter David Wright, 44, Leslie A. Harris, 44, and James Baker, 76.
