    On Tuesday, in the waiting room of the Austin, Texas VA outpatient clinic, a veteran shot himself to death as hundreds reportedly watched, according to a report in Military Times. The clinic services around 23,000 veterans. The man, whose name was not released, had a meeting with a “patient advocate” that went bad.

    The incident took place on the first floor waiting room at around noon, when hundreds of people were there. He was visibly upset when he came out of a meeting room. He said, “I guess I’ll shoot myself,” and pulled out a gun. He shot himself in the stomach, and died of his injuries shortly thereafter, according to DisabledVeterans.org.

    It took at least an hour to evacuate the facility so that the investigation could be done, as some veterans were still in a group therapy class after the shooting.

    “All of a sudden, over the intercom, they have this statement about everyone must clear the building including staff, so it was a little surprising.” Ken Walker
