Authorities have confirmed that Alan Frazier, a 51-year-old man who killed one doctor physician and injured another before turning the gun on himself, was a patient at the Reno, Nev. hospital where he opened fire on Dec. 17. Neighbors of Frazier said he was angry because he had a botched vasectomy at the Renown Regional Medical Center in 2010 and was in pain. Newly released 911 tapes paint a scene of panic and terror inside the urology office where Frazier told patients to leave or he'd shoot them, and then began firing a pistol-grip, 12-gauge shotgun.
