(Newser) – Probably not ABC’s best idea ever: On the day a man shot a doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital before killing himself and his mother, the station’s Baltimore affiliate aired a Grey’s Anatomy re-run … about a man who goes on a shooting spree at the hospital. At least WMAR-TV ran text at the bottom of the screen warning viewers the Grey’s storyline contained “events similar” to those “that happened today at Hopkins,” the Baltimore Sun reports.
