Active Shooter at Bronx Hospital in NY

Police said the gunman, a former employee identified as Dr. Henry Bello, opened fire inside Bronx Lebanon Hospital in the early afternoon.

A police official said he had a long gun, New York TImes reported.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated with additional information. By 3:30 the section of the hospital where the injured doctors were contained had been secured and the police were leading a heavily armored group of emergency service workers into the building.

Five other people were wounded in the shooting, and three of those are in serious condition from gunshot wounds, a law enforcement source told CNN.

CNN reports that the hospital is "among the largest providers of outpatient services in NY".
