SHOTS FIRED, ACTIVE SHOOTER Reported At Ben Taub Hospital in Houston, Texas

Police in Houston, Texas are responding to reports of an active shooter at Ben Taub Hospital. The hospital has been placed on lockdown, and patients are being evacuated.

Officers are searching the hospital, but have not found any victims so far, the Houston Police Department said.

About an hour before the first reports of shots fired, St. Mark’s Episcopal School in Bellaire tweeted a picture of fifth grade students holding up paintings and posing with hospital staff. The school would not answer whether the students were still at the hospital, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“All patients and employees [are] safe at this point,” Houston PD chief Art Acevedo tweeted, adding that no victims have been located, but the search continues.

Ben Taub is part of the Texas Medical Center and is affiliated with the Baylor College of Medicine.
