An Austin doctor with a terminal cancer diagnosis killed a pediatrician and then himself after taking several hostages at a clinic where he did not work. Police say Dr. Bharat Narumanchi killed Dr. Katherine Lindley Dodson. Police say four adult hostages either were let go or escaped, and he did not harm them. No children were there at the time. Police say Narumanchi had applied for a volunteer position at the clinic a week ago and declined, but he had no other known connection to Dodson.
