New Investigation in Burress Shooting

12/2/2008 8:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the New York State Department of Health has launched an investigation to determine if the hospital that treated Plaxico Burress engaged in a conspiracy to hide information.

The Department of Health -- which licenses New York-Cornell Hospital -- began its investigation after reports that hospital workers failed to report the gunshot wound, as required by New York law.

According to state law, failing to report a gunshot injury to cops is a Class A misdemeanor.

UPDATE: New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Hospital has suspended the person who didn't call the NYPD immediately, and the hospital admits not reporting a gunshot wound is a violation not just of their own policy, but of the law as well.

What a sorry human being. An example of a person that does not have enough sence to be able to handle fame and money.

Not surprising.

Another example of the African male species: You can take the person out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the person.
