Ohio man hospitalized in Fla. after Haiti shooting


MIAMI (AP) -- Hospital officials say an Ohio man is being treated for a gunshot wound after being shot and robbed in Haiti.

Project Medishare spokeswoman Catherine Murphy said Friday that 50-year-old Dave Bompart had a gunshot wound Wednesday when he walked into the organization's critical care hospital in Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince.

Murphy said doctors at Hospital Bernard Mevs Project Medishare performed two surgeries on Bompart before he was airlifted Thursday night to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.

Jackson officials did not immediately have any information about Bompart's condition.

Bompart volunteered for Project Medishare after Haiti's 2010 earthquake. Murphy said he was working for a separate project when he was shot.
