A man upset about his father’s urology appointment pulled out a gun and shot and killed an office employee who tried to discuss the situation with him Friday afternoon in New Jersey, police said.
The bullet passed through the 44-year-old woman, then struck a patient in the knee, according to the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office.
Bruce Gomola Jr., 51, was charged with first-degree murder. Gomola, of Burlington Township, is a corrections officer at the Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly. He’s currently being held in a Camden jail.
Officials said Gomola became upset concerning an appointment for his father at Delaware Valley Urology in Mount Laurel, a suburb of Philadelphia. A patient services representative, Stephanie Horton, attempted to talk to Gomola about the situation when he pulled out a handgun and shot her once in the chest, officials said.
The bullet exited her back and struck a female patient in her knee.
After the shooting, Gomola left the building and drove away. Police said he returned shortly after and surrendered.
