New Hampshire hospital locked down after report of active shooter

A person has been taken into custody in connection to reports of an active shooter at New Hampshires largest hospital

The hospital said it's assessing the situation and that Lebanon and N.H. State Police are on-site.

Lora Charbonneau said she and her husband, who is an officer, were on their way to Dartmouth-Hitchcock to see his mother when they got a call about an active shooter and lockdown at the hospital.

Police from Lebanon, New Hampshire, as well as state troopers were on site, the spokesman said. Soon after, New Hampshire Attorney General's Office Tweeted that there was only one person of interest and that person is now in custody.

"Police were looking for a man described as 6'1" tall, with salt and pepper blonde hair, wearing a red camoflage shirt and may be carrying a camoflage backpack as well, according to Dartmouth College in neighboring Hanover.

Lebanon police confirmed that there is an active investigation at the hospital but would not elaborate. Police flooded the scene and reports of a suspect in custody started coming in about an hour after the first reports of the incident.

People at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center campus in Lebanon were asked to shelter in place Tuesday. It is not clear if the lockdown has been lifted.
