The West Palm Beach VA Medical Center

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Two doctors who treat military veterans were working at emergency room desks when a colleague screamed Wednesday night that someone had a gun.

The physicians, at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Riviera Beach, heard about three shots.

One of the doctors, identified by his initials B.G. in a federal criminal affidavit, alerted everyone in the emergency room that they were in an active shooter situation.

B.G. saw a man on a scooter, who the FBI said was Larry Ray Bon, 59, an Army veteran and double amputee.

Bon was armed with a black handgun and screaming about cigarettes, according to the affidavit.
