Boston Surgeon Michael Davidson Survived by 3 Kids, Pregnant Wife

Boston surgeon Dr. Michael Davidson, director of endovascular cardiac surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital, died Tuesday after being shot by a man who came to the hospital asking to speak with him.

The gunman, identified as 55-year-old Stephen Pasceri of Millbury, Massachusetts, also died after turning the gun on himself.

The gunman’s mother, Marguerite Pasceri, who died in November, had been a patient of the surgeon.

"We are looking at a possible motive. We know (the gunman) came into the hospital on the second floor looking for this particular doctor. There was a reason he targeted this doctor," Boston Police Commissioner William Evans told WCVB-TV.

Patients, staff, and visitors were barricaded in exam rooms for about 45 minutes during the incident and surrounding roads were cordoned off.

"Dr. Davidson was a wonderful and inspiring bright light and an outstanding cardiac surgeon who devoted his career to saving lives and improving the quality of life of every patient he cared for," Dr. Elizabeth Nabel, the hospital’s president, wrote to staff members, according to the Boston Globe. “It is truly devastating that his own life was taken in this horrible manner.”

Davidson, 44, leaves behind three children, ages 2, 7, and 9, and his wife is seven months pregnant, ABC News reported.

Twitter users expressed horror and condolences.
