Hospital employees received an alert warning them of an active shooter in the level 4 south intensive care unit and told them to shelter in place, the Valley News of Lebanon reports. It is not clear if the lockdown has been lifted.

Police say they are investigating reports of an active shooter at New Hampshire's largest hospital, a facility from which some people were evacuated Tuesday.

The hospital said on Twitter that it had no more information about what happened, and there was not confirmation that a shooting had occurred. There is now no confirmation that any shots were fired during the incident, though employees were told to either evacuate or shelter in place.
