Tulsa hospital shooting suspect Michael Louis left shock note before attack



Tulsa Mass Shooter Michael Louis Complained to His Surgeon Hours Before Killing Him

There was an alleged failed back operation blamed in the statement left by the gunman in the Tulsa hospital massacre that killed four, it has been learned.

When he entered the Natalie Building at St Francis Hospital in Oklahoma on Wednesday, suspect Michael Louis had the “intention to kill” his surgeon Dr. Preston Phillips, according to authorities.

An investigation into Louis’ post-surgery suffering discovered that he had written a note in which he blamed Dr Phillips for it.

“Tulsa Police phoned me and confirmed that it’s my uncle,” Louis’ niece texted early Thursday morning. “We are in such a state of shock.” She requested that her identity not be revealed due to the “heinousness” of the crime. In an interview with The Daily Beast, she made it clear that her family does not support any form of violence.

He has been enduring back discomfort for some time, but “there is no cause for this senseless conduct,” she said. “We are aware of it.” My family and I are devout Christians. “This has never happened to us.”

Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin said Thursday that Dr. Preston Phillips, the Orthopedic physician who performed Louis’ back surgery last month, was killed in the attack. As of May 24, Louis had been released from the hospital, but Franklin said he was still in pain, even after his release.

Louis “called multiple times over several days complaining of agony and sought extra treatment,” Franklin added.

As Franklin went on to explain, “Louis called Dr. Phillips’ office yesterday, complaining of back pain and needing extra aid,” adding that Louis had legally purchased an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle from a nearby gun store at 2 p.m that same day.”

According to Franklin, Louis purchased a Smith & Wesson semi-automatic handgun on May 29 from a local pawn shop.

Dr. Stephanie Husen, a second orthopedist, was shot and murdered in the Warren Clinic Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine office on the second floor of the Natalie Medical Building near St. Francis Hospital. Authorities identified Amanda Glenn, a receptionist at the medical institution, and William Love, a patient, as the other two victims.

While Love was keeping a door closed to allow someone else to escape, Franklin stated Louis “gunned them down,” noting that Love was shot while holding a door closed to allow someone else to escape.

A 911 call was made at 4:52pm, and cops arrived on the site four minutes later, according to Franklin. After 39 seconds of police officers entering the Natalie Building, Louis fired his final gunshot, which investigators believe to be his suicide.

Franklin claims that Phillips was found dead in an exam room, and that officers discovered an old woman cowering beneath a desk next to Louis’ corpse before bringing her to safety.

A note recovered on Louis “made it apparent that he came in with the intent to kill Dr. Phillips and anyone who got in his way,” Franklin stated. After the procedure, he blamed Dr. Phillips for his ongoing agony.

Tulsa police requested that Muskogee police check a residence owned by Louis and Edith Lubin after being warned there was a bomb there. Neither Louis nor Lubin could be contacted by reporters or concerned family members after the house was evacuated on Wednesday night, according to the authorities.

There is no evidence to suggest that Lubin received any advance warning from Louis about his plan, Franklin said on Thursday. In any case, Louis phoned her “either before the shooting took place, or during the shooting, and let her know what he had done,” he claimed. After that, she called the police and told them what had happened.

The Warren Clinic’s department chief was Phillips, a doctor with decades of expertise. Spine diseases, joint reconstruction, and surgical procedures are the focus of his practice

“Wow, this is insane.” Shocking, to say the least. This is a behavior that no one in our family exhibits. Niece: “No one,” she said.

“It’s just so startling,” she told The Daily Beast after learning that her uncle was implicated. Okay, if he had shot himself, I could understand. But it’s the innocent folks that are causing me the most pain.”
