Attack in a hospital - level 3
This frightening video footage shows a man attacking nurses at a hospital in Minnesota on Sunday.
Maplewood Police released the CCTV showing 68-year-old Charles Emmett Logan burst into a nursing station and attack the nurses with a metal bar, leaving four medical workers injured.
The security system video captured Logan chasing nurses, beating them with the bar, part of medical equipment.
Police officers who were called on the scene shot Logan with a taser after he refused to drop the metal bar.
He was tackled and handcuffed, but soon went limp, and was rushed back to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The officials said Logan was admitted to the hospital after suffering bouts of confusion and delusions. The cause of death is under investigation.
