New York Hospital on Lockdown After Reports of Armed Person
Update: 3/28/23: The suspect is in custody and the hospital lockdown has ended.
Residents were both shocked and horrified to learn that a hospital in Upstate New York was recently put on lockdown after seeing reports of a possible person armed with a gun in the facility.

The hospital staff is asking visitors to remain at home and refrain from coming to the facility to see a loved one who is currently there.
