There is an active shooter investigation at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire. Local Lebanon Police requested that civilians avoid the area of the hospital.

Vermont State Police say they are assisting New Hampshire law enforcement with the incident but they released no details.

New Hampshire authorities say an incident at an intensive care unit at its largest hospital prompted an active shooter alert, and a person was taken into custody while trying to leave the grounds.

The crime scene is still being investigated, MacDonald said, adding that more than one shot was sacked during the incident.

Just after 3 p.m., the hospital tweeted that police were still on the scene.

ATFBoston special agents are responding to assist with reported active shooter situation at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

A "Code Silver" alert was issued over the hospital intercom, urging patients and employees to evacuate the building.

The Dartmouth-Hitchcock spokesman Mike Barwell told local media the hospital reported an "incident" to police, but would not speak more on the matter. Soon after, Lebanon police received an emergency call reporting shots had been fired there.

Rhode Island State Police later confirmed to WJAR that the vehicle did belong to Frink, who is a Warwick resident. Witnesses said police pulled a man out of a silver Ford Escape at the corner of Lahaye Drive and Mount Support Road, just south of the DHMC campus.

The New Hampshire attorney general's office is investigating. Officials said they would provide more information later this evening at the Lebanon, N.H. police department.
