Suspect in custody after Ohio VA hospital shooting

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A city official says a suspect is in police custody after a shooting at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Ohio that left one person with a minor injury.

Dayton spokesman Bryan Taulbee (TAHL'-bee) says the male suspect was taken into custody Monday afternoon after someone dropped him off at a hospital.

Taulbee says one person suffered a minor leg injury at the VA clinic in Dayton. Taulbee didn't know if the victim was a man or woman.

Taulbee says there were no other shooters involved.

Authorities have blocked roads leading to the hospital complex.

Employees tell media outlets that at least part of the complex was locked down around the lunch hour on Monday. Video from WDTN shows employees leaving the center while FBI agents go inside.
