John is the owner and chief veterinarian of the hospital.

He apparently let Bobby live in an apartment above the clinic, but planned to evict him.

After the incident, Bobby barricaded himself inside the building for about three hours, before the police convinced him to turn himself in.

As for John, he suffered severe damage to his leg. At the last check, the doctors were unsure whether they should amputate.

We’re told he’s had at least one surgery with potentially more in the near future.

Since the incident, his practice has remained closed for appointments.
