On Friday afternoon, Bradley Haas, a 63-year-old security guard from Franklin, was killed while beginning his shift at the hospital by 33-year-old John Madore, who police described as a transient. Haas had been with the hospital since 2019 and had previously served as Franklin’s police chief. The state police have not disclosed what brought Madore to the hospital or whether he was connected to a U-Haul found running in the parking lot with an AR-style rifle, tactical vest, and several magazines of ammunition inside.
