Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center shooting suspect in custody, police say

A suspect was imprisoned on the campus of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic Tuesday following an active shooter notify that sent New Hampshire’s biggest hospital into lockdown.  

Law enforcement in the town of Lebanon verified that one suspect was arrested immediately before 3 p. m., ninety minutes after the initial alert. Previously, police said they had been searching for a man  with salt-and-pepper blond tresses who was wearing a red camouflage clothing.

It had been not immediately clear whether there was injuries or fatalities.

One hospital worker informed WMUR that the medical center had issued a “code silver” alerting, indicating that someone was probably being violent with a weapon. An additional employee told WCAX that the alert flashed on computer screens alerting them to an active shooter within the fourth-floor intensive care unit.  

The hospital urged everybody on the main campus to expels or shelter in place. One medical center employee told WMUR that sufferers with wheelchairs and others needing support were helped into a parking great deal.  

Dartmouth-Hitchcock spokesman Mike Barwell informed local media that the hospital got reported an “incident” to law enforcement, but would not elaborate further.  

Most schools in Lebanon were positioned on lockdown in response to the incident.
