An active shooter is reportedly on the loose at a New York hospital.

A huge police response arrived at Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville on Sunday night amid reports that a man with a shotgun had walked inside.

Police vehicles are also blocking off entrances to the hospital, according to WPIX.

Officers from Bronxville, Yonkers, and Westchester County are all at the scene.

Hospital employee Mcaaulay Mike said her heard ‘code silver’ on the loudspeaker, which means someone has a weapon.

‘I just ran out,’ Mike told The Journal News. ‘I got out of there.’

‘Nobody seemed to be really take it serious, but I got out of there.’

Kereon Noel, who has family in the hospital, was in the lobby when he heard ‘code silver’ on the loudspeaker as well.

‘All the hospital staff went behind locked doors, left everyone in the waiting room, did not tell us what was going on,’ he said.

‘Once the cops started piling in, then someone came out and said there’s an incident on the sixth floor. And that’s all we know for now.’
