New Dad Kills Himself In Hospital Room Right After Wife Gives Birth

Cypress, TX – A 32-year-old man who shot himself to death in his wife’s hospital room just after she gave birth to their child on Sunday afternoon has been identified.

Michael Carl Nobles of Cypress was confirmed by the Harris County Medical Examiner to be the man who shot himself last week, local media reports. He shot himself at Willowbrook Methodist Hospital in Northwest Houston at around 5PM Sunday. He was flown to another Houston hospital where he was pronounced dead at 3AM the next day.

“Family members told our investigators that he had been recently distraught,” a Houston police spokesman told the press.

He shot himself with a.380 pistol, and had to be relocated to Memorial Hermann Hospital because Willowbrook was not equipped to deal with his injuries.

“We are a level one trauma center,” a spokeswoman said, “so depending on the acuity of a patient that will determine where a patient goes.”

Nobles’ wife, Kendra, and the couple’s new baby were not injured.

Texas law permits licensed gun owners to conceal firearms, but hospitals are designated gun-free zones. Nobles’ breach of security left some hospital visitors concerned about security procedures.

“They should probably have more security, you know. If they’re going to let people in the institution like that,” one visitor told a local news outlet.

“They probably need to have cops or something like that around if somebody has a gun or metal detectors or something.”

But a Willowbrook PR spokesperson said that they consider Nobles’ suicide an isolated incident.

“There are many signs visible throughout all of our facilities stating that the carrying of a handgun on the premises is prohibited by state law,” said the hospital’s public relations manager. “We also have security officers and armed off-duty police officers working at all of our facilities around the clock.”

Police are still investigating Nobles’ suicide, and his wife did not have a statement.

Sad. Now she has to live with the sight of that in the back of her mind and one day she will have to tell her child how the father died.

Bringing a gun instead of balloons & flowers on the day his child was born is suspect. It was premeditated. Bottom line.

@ Margaret that is what I am thinking the wife said the baby is a jacket.....Lol

I am only assuming that maybe his wife told him that the baby was not his, and I really don't think color was the issue. He may have known for wuiteo some time and planned his revenge (he thought) for exactly that time. I hope I'm wrong though.
