(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- A former Army Special Forces surgeon who allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend to death at a Buffalo, N.Y. hospital remains at large despite a massive police manhunt.
Dr. Timothy V. Jorden, 49, is wanted in connection with the death of his one-time lover, Jackie Wisniewski, 33, a nursing student who died Wednesday morning on the floor of the Erie County Medical Center.
Armed with a warrant and with ambulances at the ready, police used a robot to lead the way as they searched Jorden's Lakeview, N.Y., home late Wednesday night.
The fatal drama at the hospital began around 8 a.m., when Jorden allegedly shot and killed Wisniewski, a woman identified as his former lover, according to sources familiar with the investigation. She was found dead in a covered passageway joining the hospital's Kidney Center and another wing of the medical center, ABC News' affiliate WKBW reported.
Buffalo police, backed up by a New York State Police SWAT team, converged on the hospital and locked down the facility, treating the situation as an active shooter scenario. The lockdown was lifted at noon, but no news emerged as to the circumstances of Jorden, who was officially described as a person of interest.
