From Houston Chronicle:
“There is an active shooter situation,” the source said. “He’s barricaded on the third floor. They’ve got him isolated and barricaded and they don’t expect it to take very long. “It wasn’t a mistake, there was a specific reason (we responded),” Acevedo said. “We had multiple witnesses that heard a man yell, ‘Drop the gun, drop the gun.’ Multiple people heard two large bangs, whether or not those were gunshots is subject to further investigation.” Medical providers hid inside their offices at Ben Taub Hospital as Houston police responded to reports of shots fired inside the building. Others barricaded themselves in available areas of the hospital.
