Police Probe Reports of Shots at Ohio VA Hospital



DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Police in Ohio are combing through a Veterans Affairs hospital after getting reports of shots being fired at the complex.

Police are not saying yet whether anyone was hurt at the VA clinic in Dayton. Authorities have blocked roads leading to the hospital complex.

Employees tell media outlets that at least part of the complex was locked down around the lunch hour on Monday. Video from WDTN shows employees leaving the center while FBI agents go inside.

On its Facebook page, the clinic says scheduled appointments are on hold. It cites "a current developing situation."

The hospital provides veterans with medical, mental health and nursing home care. It has beds for about 450 people.
