Active shooter reported at New Hampshire medical center

17 min ago

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) Police say they are investigating reports of an active shooter at New Hampshire's largest hospital, where some people have been evacuated.

Lebanon police said Tuesday they are investigating reports of an active shooter at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. People were told to avoid the area, and traffic was stopped on a route leading to the hospital. There has been no confirmation of a shooting.

WCAX-TV reports an employee said all workers received an email from the hospital about a "code silver," telling them to get out if possible and otherwise to shelter in place.

A spokesman for the hospital, Mike Barwell, would say only that they have reported "an incident" to the police and officers are responding.

4. "It's the price you pay for freedom".

That's the usual idiocy burbled by the usual gang of idiots when this sort of thing happens...

7. I want the freedom to know I'm not going to get shot.

At school, at a movie theater, at a concert, sporting event, at school, work, or just going to get lunch. And if I see assholes at any of these places with giant AK-47s and AR-15s, I'm turning around and letting the manager know how I feel.

9. Yeah, but freedom to not get shot doesn't put money in the NRA's bank account.

handcuffs and a cop's knee in his back.

5. Just checked the NH television station WMUR and they've arrested someone.

No mention of any deaths or injuries.

11. WMUR reports that the suspect

was wearing "a red camouflage shirt."

Doesn't seem very camouflage-y to me.

Compared to other hospital complexes around the country, this one is probably small, but it's huge by northern NH standards and the go-to regional hospital for pretty much everything non-routine. There's probably thousands of people there every day - staff, patients, visitors, etc. No details yet beyond the WMUR report - http://www.wmur.com/article/dartmouth-hitchcock-medical-center-evacuated-after-issuing-active-shooter-alert/12230116 - but kudos for ending it quickly, and (thoughts and prayers) without casualties.

16. A Rhode Island man apparently killed his mother (NBC reporting AP)

A Rhode Island man has been arrested after he shot dead his mother in the intensive care unit of New Hampshire's largest hospital, sending dozens of police officers to the facility and forcing the facility into a lockdown, authorities said. No one else was injured.

Authorities said Travis Frink, 49, of Warwick, Rhode Island, is expected to be arraigned Wednesday on first-degree murder charges in Grafton Superior Court for the shooting just before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
