A bizarre bicycle-to-bicycle drive-by shooting has ties back to former President George H.W. Bush.
Dr. Mark Hausknecht, a cardiologist that previously worked on the President, was killed in Houston while riding his bike.
Friday Morning Shooting
Early Friday morning, Dr. Hausknecht was riding on South Main Street in Houston.
A cyclist riding in the opposite direction passed the Doctor, then opened fire on him.
The shooter escaped the scene on his bicycle.
The incident is still under investigation by police, as they are unsure at this time if it is random or a targeted shooting.
Former President Bush was obviously shaken by the incident.
Not long after word circulated, the President expressed his condolences to the family and gratitude for the services rendered by the Doctor…
