The names of the shooter and the victim haven’t been released.

The hospital was not evacuated.

 

Hospital officials are declining immediate comment.

There does not appear to be a threat to the hospital. “This appears to be a discreet incident confined to the 4th floor of the patient’s room,” Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin told WFMZ TV.
