BALTIMORE (AP) -- An investigation into a Johns Hopkins gynecologist who was secretly photographing and videotaping his patients has uncovered no evidence he shared those images or worked with others to produce them.

A spokesman for the Office of the State's Attorney for Baltimore City, Mark Cheshire, said Wednesday that an investigation into Dr. Nikita Levy by prosecutors, police and the FBI has ended. Cheshire says officials uncovered some 1,200 videos and 140 pictures made by Levy and believe he began making the images in 2005. Levy was confronted in 2013 after an employee reported suspecting him of photographing patients using a camera disguised as a pen.

Levy, who had worked at the hospital since 1988, committed suicide.

Thousands of women who were Levy's patients are suing the hospital.
