Doctor Shot at Prominent Baltimore Hospital

 American Hospital
A doctor has been shot at a hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, US police say.

Police denied that the gunman had been subdued and disarmed, despite earlier reports from Johns Hopkins hospital that he had been caught.

They are preparing a "tactical operation" to deal with the suspect, but said he had been "contained to a floor within the hospital".

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the doctor was "going to be OK".

The hospital remains open and police said people with business there were to attend as normal.

The suspect was reported to have barricaded himself inside a patient room. Mr Guglielmi refused to confirm or deny reports that the suspect's mother - a patient at the hospital - was with him.

Hospital spokesman Gary Stephenson said the shooting was on the eighth floor of the main hospital building, the Associated Press reported.
