Reports suggest that several officers were in the room and shot back at the shooter. However, a clear report on the number of police officers who occupied the room and the number of shots fired at the gun-wielder are still under review.
The gun shooting happened in a patient room in the emergency wing of the hospital while the nearby rooms were occupied by patients.
