Associated Press

CHICAGO -- An Indiana man with a history of gun convictions has been charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm after authorities say he opened fire at a Chicago hospital.

In a criminal complaint released Tuesday, the U.S. attorney's office in Chicago says 40-year-old Bernard Harvey Jr. is accused of entering the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center on Monday armed with a semi-automatic rifle that had been reported stolen in Indianapolis, where he lives.

The complaint says police responded to the hospital on Chicago's West Side after receiving reports of a man firing a gun and arrested Harvey. No one was injured.

Police later recovered six shell casings outside the hospital and one near an entrance, and found bullet holes in a hospital ceiling and the entrance door.
