A gunman opened fire at a hospital in New York on Friday, killing one woman and wounding six other people before apparently taking his own life, local police said.

The attacker, identified as Henry Bello, was a doctor who previously worked at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital, the Associated Press said, quoting a law enforcement official.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a press conference that the shooting is not linked to terrorism.

AP reported that the 45-year-old man was allowed to resign from the hospital in 2015 amid sexual harassment allegations, quoting two law enforcement officials.

The hospital is close to Yankee Stadium.
