A hospital maintenance worker shot and wounded two of his supervisors on February 22, according to CBS News.

The suspect, Victor Valcarcel Sr., was arrested at his house about an hour after the shooting that occurred at the 200-bed Hospital for Special Care in New Britain, CT.

Police were called to the hospital at 5:53 p.m. The SWAT team arrived at the hospital and a brief man hunt occurred in conjunction with neighboring towns.  Valcarcel was arrested at his house about an hour later without incident.

 Hospital officials said a dispute between Valcarcel and his supervisors had occurred, but did not go into details. His son later told media that his father was under stress and had been given extra work.
