Houston’s Ben Taub Hospital Shooting

Police Chief Says no injuries no suspect

None has been found injured and there was no evidence of a shooting following reports of gunfire inside a hospital at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, according the city’s police chief.

Chief Art Acevedo said his officers were making a second search of Ben Taub Hospital, one of the city’s major trauma centers.

Police began receiving reports of gunfire shortly after 2 p.m. CDT Tuesday.

Dozens of officers and SWAT team members are at the hospital.

Television images from helicopters showed dozens of employees leaving the hospital, some of them attending to patients who appeared to have been evacuated on gurneys or in wheelchairs.

The hospital has nearly 500 beds and its trauma center treats more than 100,000 emergency patients each year.
