The shooting began at about 14:45 local time (18:45 GMT) at the 1,000-bed Bronx-Lebanon Hospital.

"Multiple people got shot and we are looking for the perp at this time".

The New York Police Department has responded to an active shooter situation inside a Bronx hospital where at least two people have been shot. Their conditions are not yet known. There is no information about whether anyone has been killed, or if there are more victims still inside the hospital.

And in Florida last July, a man entered a patient's room and opened fire, killing an elderly female patient and a female hospital worker, police said.

A police source told WPIX the shooter, who may be a doctor, has barricaded himself inside the facility. Police said there could be more victims but they are now searching the area floor by floor.

On Twitter, the New York Police Department told members of the public to avoid the area around the hospital, located in the borough of the Bronx at 1650 Grand Concourse.

CBS New York reporter Reena Roy tweeted that the NYPD has confirmed that the shooter is down and no longer a threat.
