Suspect in custody after VA hospital shooting in Dayton

Posted: Updated:
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A shooting at a Veterans Affairs hospital on Monday left one person with a minor injury and a suspect in police custody, according to a Dayton city official.
    
The male suspect was taken into custody Monday afternoon after someone dropped him off at a hospital, Dayton spokesman Bryan Taulbee said.
    
One person suffered a minor leg injury at the Dayton VA clinic, said Taulbee, who didn't know if the victim was a man or woman.
    
The suspect is from suburban Dayton, and there were no other shooters involved, Taulbee said.
    
Authorities blocked roads leading to the hospital complex. Employees told media outlets that at least part of the complex was locked down around the lunch hour on Monday. WDTN showed video of employees leaving the center while FBI agents went inside.
    
On its Facebook page, the clinic said scheduled appointments were on hold, citing "a current developing situation."
    
The center has beds for about 450 people and provides veterans with medical, mental health and nursing home care.
    
Four years ago, an Iraq War Army veteran wearing military fatigues fatally shot himself at a monument to soldiers outside the same hospital. The man, Jesse C. Huff, had been a patient there. He had been wounded by an explosive device in Iraq.
