NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) ' Police say a Connecticut hospital employee shot and wounded two supervisors amid a dispute over a disciplinary issue.
New Britain Police Chief John Gagliardi says 65-year-old Victor Valcarcel Sr. was arrested at his home without incident a mile away from the hospital.
Gagliardi says the two victims are in serious but stable condition at a hospital in Hartford.
The shootings took place late Wednesday afternoon at the Hospital for Special Care, a private nonprofit facility specializing in rehabilitation and long-term acute care.
A helicopter with a search light flew over the hospital as police cars and ambulances responded to the shooting.
A hospital spokeswoman said Valcarcel is a maintenance worker at the hospital. Officials say there had been a dispute with his supervisors but no further details were immediately available.
