A woman shot and killed a cardiologist at 868-bed Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, and then turned the gun on herself yesterday in an apparent murder-suicide that shocked the hospital community. Brian McGovern, 47, was shot while working in his office near the hospital's main lobby. The woman was identified as Colleen Mitchell, 51, a Boston-area resident who at one time had worked in a lab near McGovern's office. No motive was given for the crime. -- by Jeff Tieman
