Lapeyere Dentists and Dentists of Lapee County, Michigan, have confirmed the death of their family dentist who was allegedly attacked by a man outside his dental office in Lapeere Township, a small town in the Lapeero County.
The dentist’s daughter, who works for the Laperoles, told local ABC affiliate WXYZ that her father was on the phone with her on Wednesday when he heard gunshots.
He then went to the office to investigate, but the gunfire didn’t stop, the daughter said.
The attack occurred just minutes after the dentist was scheduled to give his annual address.
The family dentist was attacked outside of the Lappy’s Dental office on June 12.
He was treated at the hospital, and is in stable condition, according to Lapeyer County Police Department Lt.
The Laperole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that the dentist has died, but did not provide any additional details.
A post on Facebook for Lappy Dental Services states the office will close for the day and has been closed for several days.
The company has not yet responded to Breitbart News’ request for comment.
A spokesperson for Laperolye Dental declined to comment on the dentist’s death.
A spokesperson for the Dental and Vision Institute, the organization that oversees the clinic, did not respond to a request for information about the dentist.
Laperole Dentists also did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday.
A Facebook post for Lapy Dental services in Laperolis, Michigan reads, “We are deeply saddened to report the passing of our beloved Lappy Dentist, Dr. Bill Lappy.
He passed away peacefully in his sleep.”
