OMG, a top Florida surgeon in the US has been gunned down by, get this, a disgruntled patient, who the doctor had recently saved by performing a double organ transplant . Nelson Flecha shot dead Dr Dmitriy Nikitinwas as he walked to his car following a shift at a hospital, then turned the gun on himself.
