A person is in police custody following reports of an active shooter at New Hampshire's largest hospital and at least a partial evacuation of the facility Tuesday, according to the Lebanon Police Department.

New Hampshire reporter Roger Carroll tweeted that "sources say father who shot and killed son and DH Newport location now locked down".

The hospital said in a statement the building is now on lockdown "following reports of an active shooter in the hospital".

"The alert said police were searching for a male, 6'1", with salt and pepper blonde hair, and wearing a red camouflage shirt.

The university urged people to avoid the area until further notice.

The Federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Vermont state police assisted New Hampshire and local police.

The active-shooter alert forced authorities to issue evacuation and shelter-in-place orders. Schools in the area have been placed on lockdown.

Several witnesses driving along Interstate I-89 reported seeing heavy State Police presence at all exits.

A family and visitor center is being set up at the hospital in response to the incident.

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

Jolie, 42, who won a supporting actress Oscar for "Girl, Interrupted" in 2000, shrugged off her status as a role model for women. Again I find myself typing the words, "It's an unquestionably worthy story, I just wish it was told with more inventiveness".
