Mercy Hospital – Unity Campus locked down after reports of nearby shootings

Authorities are conducting a search in the area of ​​Unity Hospital, specifically near Highway 47 and Osborne Rd. NE, for a suspect involved in a shooting that occurred in the hallway of an apartment building.

Witnesses said they heard two gunshots shortly before 3 p.m. in the apartment, and the victim who was shot was later found walking in the emergency room.

Although no description of the suspect has been released, it is possible that the identified individual left as a passenger in a white 2001 Ford Explorer registered in the name of the shooter’s sister.

The initial shooting incident occurred at Highland Park Apartments, specifically in the 600 block of Osborne Rd.

Woodcrest Spanish Immersion School, located just east of the apartment, posted a message that all students and staff will remain indoors until cleared by the police to carry out the usual dismissal and boarding of the buses.

Parents who prefer to collect their children have the option of doing so by visiting the school, and law enforcement will be present on the premises until the dismissal procedure is completed.

This is a developing story that will be updated when more information becomes available.
