Sounds like someone didn’t want to sign off on something.

Horrible tragedy. 🙏🏻💜🙏🏻

His name, is Dr. Walter Reynolds. Say his name. Don’t give power to the man who took him away from his practice and his family.

Still want to defund the police and deal with these calls via social worker?


Condolences to family and friends.....sending love and blessings...🙏🇨🇦🇨🇦❤️

All violent death is tragic. This perhaps more so because of the twisted irony -he was taking care of lives, while his is taken in a clinic where one goes in hope of health, wellness. A man dedicated to helping people had no chance of saving himself.

OMG will this shitty year even end with all these tragedies... big condolences to his family and friends! 😢

That's TERRIBLE & HEARTBREAKING!! My deepest condolences to the family and friends. What a terrible loss for the community n family. 💔💔💔😢😢😢😢😢 I hope for the max sentence for the perp!!! This is not right.

Obsessed ex lover?

What a horrible loss to the community.
