A man who allegedly shot the doctor who delivered his wife's baby may have taken aim because he didn't want the medic to see her naked, it's reported.Say, I wonder where the creep even got the handgun? I'm guessing the House of Saud doesn't have gun control like some US cities do. I guess that doesn't worry gun control advocates unlike in the USA, where they seek to increase crime rates.
The male doctor, named locally as Muhannad al-Zabn, was treated for gunshot wounds after the delivery at the King Fahad hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The man, who has not been named in any media, had reportedly requested a female doctor to treat his wife.
After the birth, it's been reported by Gulf News that the father contacted the doctor to thank him.
But at a meeting in the hospital garden, he allegedly took out a handgun and fired from close range.
Dr al-Zabn was taken to the hospital’s intensive care unit and is understood to be in a stable condition, reports Newsweek.

An anti-Israeli British historian rejected a Dan David Prize for easily guessable reasons:
British historian Catherine Hall of University College London has declined the Dan David Prize she was set to receive, citing "political reasons." Hall did not attend the award ceremony held Sunday at Tel Aviv University.But if the alleged historian had taken the prize money, she probably would've given it to Israel's enemies. That's why I'd advise the foundation not to give her a monetary prize at all. Good they're now using the funding for better purposes.
The British Committee for the Universities of Palestine, an organization of U.K.-based academics "set up in response to the Palestinian call for academic boycott," quoted Hall as saying: "I have withdrawn from the prize -- this was an independent political choice, undertaken after many discussions with those who are deeply involved with the politics of Israel-Palestine, but with differing views as to how best to act."
The group lauded Hall's "principles" for "renouncing her share of the $1 million prize, placing principle above financial gain."
Ariel David, whose father Dan David founded the Dan David Foundation, said that the $300,000 in prize money that would have been awarded to Hall will instead go toward funding scholarships for students at the university.
