DARBY, Pa. - Police in suburban Philadelphia are investigating a shooting at a hospital campus that may have left as many as three people injured and say a suspect is in custody.
The Yeadon police department says it has received reports a doctor and two other people were wounded Thursday afternoon at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, a few miles southwest of downtown Philadelphia.
The department says a suspect is in custody but it doesn't have any more information because all its officers are at the scene.
A hospital spokeswoman says the shooting was reported at its wellness center, which is attached to the hospital by a pedestrian bridge.
The 213-bed teaching hospital is part of the Mercy Health System, a large Catholic health care network serving the region.
