WESTCHESTER -

The man accused of firing a gun in a hospital and then leading police on a manhunt has been indicted.

Police say 42-year-old Joshua Stuart shot an opioid dispenser at the Ellenville Hospital in September and then fled.

Prosecutors say the next day, Stuart broke into a home and stole a car.

He was later found in Brooklyn and charged with attempted murder and robbery.

Stuart's defense attorney says his client is a longtime heroin addict.
