Bradley Haas, a 63-year-old man from Franklin, was killed at the hospital where he had worked since 2019 as a security guard. He had previously served as Franklin’s police chief before joining the hospital’s staff. The state police have not released much information about what led to Haas’ death or whether there is any connection between him and a U-Haul found running in the parking lot with an AR-style rifle, tactical vest, and several magazines of ammunition inside.
