Hospital shooting leaves one dead

Emergency Management Alert, December 2, 2008

Typically a hospital is the scene after the crime, but last week, an Alaska hospital quickly became the scene of the crime.
On the morning of November 26, a disgruntled former employee of Central Peninsula in Soldotna, AK, allegedly went on a deadly rampage, killing one employee and injuring another before state troopers shot and killed him.
After being fired November 25, Joseph Marchetti returned the next day at 10 a.m. armed with a .223-caliber semiautomatic rifle and a 9mm pistol, according to the Anchorage Daily News. Marchetti fired roughly two dozen rounds into doors, walls, and people, shooting and killing Information Systems Director Mike Webb and critically injuring Director of Radiology Margaret Stroup.
After walking out of the hospital, the gunman was fired at by three state troopers after a 20-minute standoff in which troopers attempted to reason with him.
