Presidential Dr Just Murdered In Drive-By Bicycle Shooting Under Mysterious Circumstances

Dr. Mark Hausknecht who was the cardiologist who treated former President George H.W. Bush was k****d Friday morning under very strange circumstances.

Reports are saying that shortly before 9 a.m. the 65-year-old Dr. Hausknecht and the alleged s*****r were both riding bikes on South Main Street, near Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women near the Texas Medical Center in Houston.

In a press conference, Police Chief Troy Finner said Hausknecht was riding north when he passed the s*****r going in the other direction, the s*****r then turned, fired two shot at the doctor and rode away on his bike. Hausknecht was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced d**d a short time later.

Finner added that investigators didn’t exactly know if the s******g was targeted, random or caused by road rage but that a few people witnessed the s******g and video may be out there. In an updated description, the suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male, around 30 years old, wearing a tan baseball cap, gray warmup jacket, khaki shorts and riding a light-colored mountain bike. So basically it could be half of Texas.

“A cardiologist who treated former President George H.W. Bush was k****d Friday morning in a bicycle-to-bicycle drive-by s******g near Texas Medical Center in Houston, authorities said.

Dr. Mark Hausknecht and the s*****r were both riding bikes on South Main Street, near Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women, shortly before 9 a.m. local time, Executive Assistant Police Chief Troy Finner said at a news conference.

Hausknecht, 65, was biking north when he passed the s*****r going in the other direction, Finner said. The s*****r turned, fired two shots at Hausknecht and rode away on his bike, Finner said.

Hausknecht was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced d**d, Finner said.

Finner said investigators didn’t know if the s******g was targeted, random or caused by road rage. He said a few people witnessed the s******g and video may become available.

In an updated description, the suspect is said to be a white or Hispanic male, about 30 years old, wearing a tan baseball cap, gray warmup jacket, khaki shorts and riding a light-colored mountain bike bicycle.

Jim McGrath, spokesman for the 94-year-old former President, issued this statement: “President George HW Bush was deeply saddened by the tragic circumstances surrounding the untimely passing of Dr. Mark Hausknecht, and 41 sends his most sincere condolences to the Hausknecht family, his colleagues at Houston Methodist, and his friends.”

“Mark was a fantastic cardiologist and a good man,” President Bush said in the statement. “I will always be grateful for his exceptional, compassionate care. His family is in our prayers.

In a statement, Houston Methodist Hospital said:

“I’m very sorry to inform you that Dr. Mark Hausknecht, a cardiologist who was an important member of the Houston Methodist staff and the DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, was tragically shot and k****d this morning while riding his bicycle to work. Mark was a leader in the Houston Cardiovascular Associates and specialized in cardiovascular disease. He received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine and completed his residency and fellowship at The John Hopkins Hospital. He is a longtime Houston Methodist-affiliated physician and has been in practice for almost four decades.”

The s******g prompted authorities to urge people inside the Bioscience Research Collaborative Center to shelter in place, CNN affiliate KTRK reported

Here is more via The Daily Sentinel:

“A cardiologist who once treated former President George H.W. Bush was fatally shot by a fellow bicyclist Friday while riding through a Houston medical complex, and police were trying to determine if the s******g was random or a targeted act.

The s******g happened around 9 a.m. as Dr. Mark Hausknecht was going northbound through the Texas Medical Center, said Houston Police Executive Assistant Chief Troy Finner.

“The suspect was on a bicycle as well. Rode past the doctor, turned and fired two shots. The doctor immediately went down,” Finner said.

Hausknecht, 65, hit at least once, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.

Hausknecht was going in to work at Houston Methodist Hospital when he was shot, the hospital’s CEO said in an email to staff.

The area where the s******g took place is part of a 1,345-acre complex of hospitals and medical institutions, including the University of Texas MD Anderson C****r Center, and is busy with traffic and pedestrians during the day.

Authorities late Friday continued searching for the suspect, who was wearing a gray warmup jacket, khaki shorts and a tan baseball cap.

Hausknecht treated Bush in February 2000 for an irregular heartbeat after the ex-president complained about lightheadedness while visiting Florida.

The cardiologist appeared with Bush at a news conference after his treatment.

Bush on Friday offered his condolences to Hausknecht’s family.

“Mark was a fantastic cardiologist and a good man,” Bush said in a statement. “I will always be grateful for his exceptional, compassionate care.”

Hausknecht had been in medical practice for almost 40 years and specialized in cardiovascular disease, said Marc Boom, president and CEO of Houston Methodist Hospital.

Hausknecht was part of the hospital’s medical staff as well as its DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center.

“His patients appreciated his kind bedside manner and the extra time he took to answer their questions and fully explain their condition and treatment,” Boom said in an email to employees on Friday. “Our employees who worked with him said patients were so proud to call him their doctor.”

This is truly an odd case. Not many doctors who bike to work are gunned down. Whatever happened here let’s hope the authorities can get to the bottom of it ASAP.
