A gunman reportedly opened fire at a medical building on the campus of a Reno, Nevada hospital on Tuesday afternoon. According to a statement by Reno police Lt. Tom Robinson at a press conference following the shooting, at least one victim has died in addition to the shooter. Two other victims were injured, and are currently seeking medical treatment.
The area surrounding the Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno is shut down to traffic, and police remain on the scene. According to the AP, the unidentified gunman entered the hospital at about 2:45 p.m. local time and started shooting, turning the gun on himself by 3 p.m.
Earlier, there was some confusion on the condition of the victims. Reno police corrected an earlier statement indicating that two had died in the shooting — one victim and the gunman, indicating that only the gunman had died. Police will hold another press update at 4:30, Reno time.
