A 76-year-old veteran committed suicide in the parking lot of the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Peter Kaisen, 76, shot himself to death.
According to Daily Mail:
"Two hospital employees talking anonymously to the New York Times, which broke the story, revealed that Kaisen had been frustrated that he could not see a doctor in the emergency room, where he went to seek help related to his mental health.
One of the sources told the paper that the 76-year-old veteran shot himself inside his car after being denied service in the ER."
