BALTIMORE (AP) Police say a man shot and wounded a doctor Thursday at world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital, then killed himself and a relative in a two-hour standoff inside the sprawling red-brick complex.

Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told The Associated Press that the gunman and his relative died in a hospital room.

He said earlier that he did not know the relationship between the gunman and the doctor. The hospital said in a statement that the doctor is a faculty physician but that it could not release more information because of privacy policies.

The police spokesman says the doctor was shot in the stomach but was expected to survive.
