An overly protective husband was upset when he heard that a male doctor helped in delivering a baby for his wife. Dr. Muhannad Al Zabn, a male obstetrician, was the doctor in question, who helped deliver the baby at King Fahad Medical City one month prior to the current incident with the angry husband.
After the delivery of the baby had occurred the husband wanted to meet with the doctor under the presumption of thanking him for delivering his newborn. The pair met in the garden area of the hospital where the angry husband pulled out a handgun from the inside of his coat, he shot the doctor in the stomach before fleeing the scene.
Fortunately, medics were able to provide the doctor emergency treatment hastily due to the location of the shooting. The husband was later caught by the police and arrested.
It was confirmed a while after the shooting that the doctor was in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit by Bassam Al Buraikan, the spokesperson for the hospital
