'Gunman' on loose in hospital as police swoop to shooting reports

Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center shooting

Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center shooting

"We do several drills at the hospital a year", he said.

The hospital had resumed normal operations as of Tuesday evening.

Multiple news sources are reporting that a suspect is in custody after hospital in western New Hampshire was evacuated and locked down amid reports of an active shooter.

Pamela Ferrieres nurse called 911, saying a visitor had pulled out a black handgun.

The crime scene is still being investigated, MacDonald said, adding that more than one shot was sacked during the incident.

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald says the patient, a woman, was shot and killed by a family member.

She had suffered an aneurysm but was scheduled to be discharged on Friday, state police said. Deputy Medical Examiner Jennie Duval ruled the death a homicide. "I'm not a mind reader", he said, before hanging up. No one else was injured.

Anyone with information about Frink's whereabouts the last few days is asked to contact police. They also said no motive has been established at this time. Officials said the body of Frink's wife was found in the driver's seat and the body of his son was found on the floor in the back of the vehicle. The man was taken away in a police cruiser, and caution tape was put up around the auto.

Frink's LinkedIn page shows that he has worked for years in technical support and administration.

Frink's lawyer didn't immediately return a voicemail message left Wednesday by The Associated Press. Dr. Conroy is hosting a town hall meeting Wednesday to discuss next steps for employees in recovery from the event. "It wasn't until I was outside that I saw some doctors who were getting emergency texts right away, and they said, 'My colleague is in there, ' and then they told us active shooter". Buses were called in to transport patients to other hospitals.

Only five surgeries were postponed on Tuesday. The hospital has returned to normal operation.

The hospital was evacuated Tuesday afternoon after an "active shooter" alert was issued, but there was no immediate confirmation of a shooting.
