Suspect in custody after report of shooting at New Hampshire's largest hospital

Police say a suspect is in custody in an active shooter investigation at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire. "Lebanon and New Hampshire State police have been alerted and are on-site", the hospital said. We have no word on when the lockdown will be lifted. He also confirmed that local and state police were on site.

The center helped identify the suspect as a Rhode Island resident, said Laura Meade Kirk, a state police spokeswoman.

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

The name of the suspect wasn't immediately released by officials and the victim's condition is now unknown.

In a news conference Tuesday evening, New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said the suspect was apprehended without incident as he tried to leave the premises.
