Police: Man who shot 2 officers at hospital dies

AP, September 30, 2010
A 39-year-old man who led police on a high-speed car chase early Wednesday opened fire hours later at an Omaha hospital, grazing two police officers before they gunned him down, authorities said.

Jeffrey Layten, of Valley, died of his wounds shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday at Creighton University Medical Center, Omaha Police spokesman Jacob Bettin said. Police did not disclose a possible motive for the shootings, and the hospital's CEO, Gary Honts, said he didn't know of any link Layten may have had to the hospital.
