Dartmouth-Hitchcock in Lebanon locked down after active shooter report

Lebanon police in New Hampshire told Fox News they received "reports of shots fired", but did not confirm there was a shooter in the building. The hospital was under lockdown and it wasn't clear if that was lifted.

Workers received an email earlier in the afternoon from the hospital for a "code silver", which means employees need to get out of the hospital if possible or if they can not leave, then they should shelter in place.

A suspect was arrested on the campus of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Tuesday following an active shooter alert that sent New Hampshire's largest hospital into lockdown.
