PICKERINGTON, Ohio (WTVN) --Counselors are going to be at Fairfield Medical Center Tuesday, ready to help those dealing with the violent death of long time cardiologist Mehdi Ali Qamar.  

Qamar was shot and killed in his native Pakistan Monday as he visited the graves of his parents.  

Qamar's wife and 2-year old son were with him, but were not hurt.

Qamar --at the Fairfield Medical Center for more than 10 years--was in Pakistan on a 3-week medical mission.
