UPDATE: All Clear At Houston Hospital, No Shooter Found

UPDATE: Houston Police has given the all-clear; no shooter found despite multiple reports of gunfire.

Given the number of bomb threats called into Jewish centers over the past month, some suspect it may have been a hoax perpetrated by anti-Semites.



An active shooter has been reported at the Ben Taub Hospital in Houston, Texas. Police officers have entered the building with weapons drawn; ABC13 Houston reports nearly a hundred officers with assault rifles have surrounded the hospital.

Law enforcement just told the Houston Chronicle that the shooter is contained. “There is an active shooter situation. He’s barricaded on the third floor. They’ve got him isolated and barricaded and they don’t expect it to take very long.”

No injuries or deaths have been reported as of yet.

It is legal in Texas to carry firearms inside a hospital.

A live link to ABC13’s coverage of the incident can be found here.

This is an ongoing story that will be updated as more information emerges.
