So scary! When I was a newborn my mother, who was a hospital administrator, fired some guy for doing drugs on the job. The next day he showed with a gun, thankfully not during her shift. He shot and killed her boss and was supposedly running up and down the hallways screaming my mom's name. He actually got away and they had to surround my house with cops until he was captured. Thankfully they got him. On a different occasion a man showed up with a gun to the hospital searching for his wife who was in the hospital from a beating he gave her. He showed up to kill her and thankfully my mom was able to talk him down. My point being unfortunately these things are not as rare as they should be at hospitals.

ABC13 is posting pics on facebook of hospital staff taking patients out of the hospital. There are livestreams at the above link.

HPD Chief is saying that there was no evidence of an active shooter, nor any evidence of anyone with a gun.

Someone heard a noise that sounded like a gun and a code white was called. Thats all I know.

I forgot to add that it was extra creepy because a local school was delivering artwork to patients.

Sadly, this is true. Here at Brigham and Women's hospital ,a patients's son shot and killed a cardiologist then shot himself bc he felt the md didn't do enough to save his mother.


I hope no is hurt in Houston.
