On Tuesday morning, nurse Gail Sandidge was working at Good Shepherd Ambulatory Surgical Center in Longview, Texas, when she heard a commotion. Twenty-two-year-old Kyron Templeton was roaming the hospital, wielding a hunting knife, and screaming, “You’re not going to kill my mother!”
He stabbed Sandidge in the chest, and she died from the injury several hours later. Four others were also wounded. Police tracked Templeton down on a road close to the hospital, and while justice will be served, nothing can bring back this beloved nurse whose death has caused a whole community to grieve.
