El Paso VA clinic shooter had threatened doctor - Video
The man who shot and killed a psychologist had previously threatened him before Tuesday's shooting at the El Paso VA Health Care System clinic, FBI officials said Wednesday. Timothy Fjordbak, 63, had been threatened at a supermarket in October 2013 by Jerry Serrato, 48, who killed Fjordbak before shooting himself at the clinic, said Douglas Lindquist, the special agent in charge of the FBI in El Paso.
The shooting sparked a large response by several law enforcement agencies and a security lockdown that had staff and patients behind closed doors for hours Tuesday at the VA clinic next to William Beaumont Army Medical Center on Fort Bliss.
