Police: Hopkins gunman shot himself and relative

BALTIMORE, MD (AP) - Baltimore police say a gunman who wounded a doctor at Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore has shot and killed himself and a relative during a standoff with police.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tells The Associated Press that the suspect and his relative died in a hospital room. The standoff lasted more than 2 hours.

He said earlier that he did not know the relationship between the gunman - described as a man in his 30s - and the doctor.

The hospital said in a statement that the doctor is a faculty physician but that it could not release more information because of privacy policies.
