A Houston man shot himself in a private room at Willowbrook Methodist Hospital in Northwest Houston Sunday afternoon. He was in a private room with his wife, who had just given birth to their three-and-one-half-hour-old baby. The baby was not in the room at the time.
The man, whose name was not released, died after being transported to another hospital. Family members say he had been distraught.
The man had a concealed handgun, illegal in hospitals. The type of gun used was not given.
