A man, believed to be the distraught father of a patient, was holding at least two people hostage at a hospital in Tomball, Texas, this evening, police said.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said it had deployed its High Risk Operation Unit, but it was not known whether the man at the Tomball Regional Medical Center was armed.
A supervisor at the county’s emergency dispatch center told The Associated Press the situation was in the critical care unit and began around 7 p.m.
Tomball is about 30 miles northwest of Houston
