BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Police have cordoned off a Buffalo, N.Y., hospital where a person reportedly has been fatally shot.
A police spokesman says Erie County Medical Center is locked down Wednesday morning and a SWAT team is on the scene after reports of shots being fired. Local media outlets report that a woman was shot to death outside the hospital around 8:15 a.m. The reports say the shooting occurred outside a building on hospital grounds but away from the main building.
A woman who answered the phone at the hospital's administration office says no other information was being released yet. She says the public relations staff was prevented from getting into the building after it was locked down.
A police helicopter is circling over the medical center's campus, which includes a 550-bed hospital.
