BRONX NEWS: Bronx hospital shooter emailed Daily News 2 hours before attack


Just two hours before his deadly rampage at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, shooter Henry Bello ranted to the Daily News in an email — blaming the medical center for ruining his dreams of furthering his career.


“This hospital terminated my road to a licensure to practice medicine,” Bello wrote to The News at 12:46 p.m. on Friday. “First, I was told it was because I always kept to myself. Then it was because of an altercation with a nurse.”


Bello, 45, said he was ultimately fired from his job for threatening a co-worker.


In his email to The News, Bello blamed two doctors by name for getting the ax.

Bello said that after he was fired, he wrote an email to one female doctor “congratulating her for my termination after she sent out an email to everybody telling them to file complaints against me so I can be terminated for being rude to her.”


“I only said in the email, it remains to be seen if my life is meaningless or disposable,” Bello wrote.


He blamed another doctor for blocking his chances at getting a medical permit, saying he had poured 0,000 of his money into Bronx-Lebanon.


The News is withholding the name of both doctors whom Bello had blamed for his woes.

Ex-physician kills doctor, wounds 6 in Bronx hospital shooting


Bello never threatened violence in the email he sent to The News.


An editor at The News who read the letter made the connection to Bello a few hours after the rampage.


The shooting took place at 2:45 p.m. — two hours after the chilling email was sent — when Bello opened fire on his former colleagues with an AR-15 rifle. He wounded six workers and killed a female doctor before turning the gun on himself.


Bello, who last lived in the Bronx, had been forced to resign from his job as house physician at the medical center two years ago after he was accused of sexually harassing a co-worker.

BRONX NEWS: What we know about the Bronx Lebanon Hospital shooter (GRAPHIC)


A disgruntled ex-medical worker who went on a deadly shooting rampage at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Friday afternoon has a history of sex abuse and resigned from the medical center after being accused of sexual harassment, sources said.


Henry Bello, 45, faced being fired from his job as pharmacy technician two years ago after he was accused of harassing a co-worker, according to sources. He was allowed to resign in lieu of being terminated, the sources said.


Bello was busted for sex abuse in August 2004 in the Bronx for groping a woman, according to police sources. He was arrested again in October 2009 for unlawful surveillance under a victim’s clothing.


He was also busted twice in 2003 — for fare-beating and burglary, sources said.


Armed with an assault rifle cloaked under a white lab coat, Bello stormed his former workplace Friday afternoon, opening fire on ex-colleagues on the hospital’s 16th floor.


He killed a doctor and injured six other hospital employees. NYPD officials said he was found dead on the 17th floor with a self-inflicted gunshot wound after he failed to light himself on fire.


Bello worked as a licensed pharmacy technician in the family medicine unit. It’s unclear how long Bello worked at Bronx Lebanon, but state records show that a Henry Williams Bello was issued a medical permit to work there on July 1, 2014.


Police have said they were investigating the shooting as a workplace violence incident.


Records show that Bello lived at an East Village address.


A neighbor said she recognized his picture but had not seen him for more than a year and a half.
