'Shooter' in custody after lock-down at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in Lebanon

There has been no confirmation of a shooting.

According to a staff alert from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the campus is now under a code silver. The hospital was under lockdown and it wasn't clear if that was lifted. An employee tells the station the incident was reported around 1:30 p.m.

Authorities were dispatched at the hospital and sent out an announcement that warned people to avoid the area, and traffic was stopped on a route leading to the hospital.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center was placed on lockdown Tuesday amid reports of an active shooter at the New Hampshire hospital, Dartmouth University said.
