GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) – Police have arrested a hospital worker accused of taking photographs of a young patient while the child was in the shower.

Police said Friday that 29-year-old Travis James McMurray, of Gulfport, was arrested Thursday on a charge of secretly photographing for lewd purposes. Additional warrants were issued after police determined two other children have been identified as victims.

McMurray works at Memorial Behavioral Health, which offers inpatient and partial inpatient hospitalization at its offices on U.S. 49. According to Memorial Hospital at Gulfport’s website, employees counsel adults, adolescents and children “to help them and their families resolve and manage emotional and behavioral problems.” McMurray’s position at the center is not clear.
