‘Active Shooter Alert’ Issued at New Hampshire Medical Center

Published

Shortly before 2 p.m. local time on Tuesday, authorities at a hospital in Lebanon, New Hampshire, broadcasted an “active shooter alert,” local media outlets report.

Heavily-armed police forces are on the scene at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Several social media reports indicate one person has been shot. Witnesses said via Twitter they had heard gunshots in the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) ward. WMUR, a local TV station, though, reports there has been “no confirmation of shooting.”

Dartmouth College, an Ivy League school, announced that classes have not been canceled and the campus is operating normally.

The hospital is about 2.6 miles, or a ten-minute drive, from the university.

Following reports of an active shooter, the hospital went into lockdown mode, according to a Dartmouth-Hitchcock statement. “We are assessing the situation now, and will have more information as soon as it becomes available,” the statement reads. “Lebanon and New Hampshire State police have been alerted and are on-site,” the hospital said.

The college said uniformed officers are “sweeping” Dartmouth-Hitchcock facilities “to ensure the buildings are safe on the Lebanon campus.”

More details to follow.

A man, who was being pursued by police officers, took refuge on Wilford Burgess’s roof, evading police for nearly five hours and creating a standoff. Crisis negotiators arrived on the scene, trying to coax the man to come down. After several hours where authorities were unable to convince the man to leave the roof, Burgess decided to take action, with the entire incident caught on film.

The incident began at 6:34 am local time when law enforcement officials received a call some someone who said they were being followed. Once deputies arrived at the scene, a man was spotted jumping from one roof to the next, coming to a stop on top of Burgess’s home.

Wrenn said she was woken up at about 7:00 am local time when deputies began shouting: “We know where you are. We can see you.”

After being on Burgess’ roof for about an hour or so, Burgess said he felt it was time to try taking matters into his own hands. He decided to bring out a ladder and climb up there himself. “He’d been up there too long,” Burgess said. “I figured … if they can’t get him off, I can.”

Burgess’ grandaughter, Ashley Wrenn, captured the whole scene on video. She said she isn’t surprised her elderly grandfather did what he did.
