Shots were reported on the second floor of Ben Taub Hospital around 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, leading Houston police to send a SWAT team to the scene.

More than 200 police officers have responded to the scene.

Patients have been evacuated from the hospital. Hundreds of staff, patients and family members are milling about in the area, mingled with armed officers.

Witnesses at the scene described hearing an indistinguishable noise as everyone ran for the exits.

“I heard them screaming ‘code white,'” Edward Jaime told ABC 13 News. A “code white” is enforced to tell employees not at the hospital to stay away from the area.
