Reports indicate that an active shooter is present at Wright Patterson Air Force Base Hospital near Dayton, Ohio.

Emergency dispatch staff report that someone may be barricaded inside the hospital.

WHIO reports that many people have been escorted from the facility.

There have been conflicting reports as to how the situation may have started:

  • One law enforcement official told us on the record that the incident started as a training exercise. The official said something happened during training and someone fired shots to get into a door that they could not get into.
  • Another source said there is a situation with hostages and shots were fired. Someone tried to break out a window or windows to get people out of the hospital. The source also said the base is asking for K-9s, not more law enforcement.
