BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Surgeon Timothy Jorden saved the lives of patients with gunshot wounds, lived in big home by Lake Erie and owned four vehicles. He became an Army officer before coming home to Buffalo to earn his medical degree.
Now the healer is linked to a killing.
Police across the country were on the lookout Thursday for the 49-year-old trauma surgeon in connection with the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend at the Buffalo hospital complex where they both worked. Police say the former Army weapons expert may be armed and should be considered dangerous.
Friends and neighbors say Jorden seemed different lately. He was thinner, not quite as friendly.
The search for Jorden began Wednesday morning when 33-year-old Jacqueline Wisniewski (whiz-NEW'-ski) was found shot to death at Erie County Medical Center.
