Gunman in Custody After Shooting at NH Hospital


One person is in custody after an active-shooter report at a New Hampshire hospital, according to the city's website. Reports claimed that people were told to avoid the area.

The hospital said on Twitter that it had no more information about what happened, and there was not confirmation that a shooting had occurred.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon is now locked down following reports of an active shooter in the hospital.

The city of Lebanon wrote on its website that someone was taken into police custody before 3 p.m. Tuesday after reports of an active shooter at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.


TV reports claimed that all workers received an email from the hospital about a "code silver", telling them to get out if possible or otherwise stay put. "Code silver" indicates that a violent situation is unfolding.

Multiple New Hampshire State Police cruisers rushed to the area, where they were assisting with response and investigation, NBC5 reported.

New Hampshire reporter Roger Carroll tweeted that "sources say father who shot and killed son and DH Newport location now locked down". Although law enforcement officials have not confirmed whether the auto was connected to the incident, Rhode Island State Police confirmed to WJAR the SUV belongs to the suspect after authorities contacted them regarding the vehicle's Rhode Island license plates.
