A SUSPECT has been taken into custody after he allegedly stabbed a doctor and two nurses at a California hospital on Friday, a hospital spokesman said.
The sting was reported in a building at Encino Hospital Medical Center.
According to local reports, the suspect had barricaded himself inside the building.
The suspect was described as a man in his 30s who left his car in the middle of Ventura Boulevard before going straight to the hospital’s emergency room and requesting treatment for anxiety.
Shortly thereafter, he is said to have started stabbing several people.
A statement from the hospital at the time said: “Three casualties at Encino Hospital were two nurses and one ED doctor, all of whom were rushed to the nearest trauma center. The hospital is currently closed. We are monitoring the situation and our continued thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.”
A victim was transported from that hospital to another hospital nearby, authorities said. Several people were taken from stretchers.
LAPD and Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded at the scene.
The victims of stabbings were taken to a trauma center by the authorities.
One victim who was wheeled out of the medical center appeared to be wearing a hospital uniform and another appeared to be a patient.
A portion of Ventura Boulevard is cordoned off by police to keep people out of the area.
The incident happened days after Michael Louis stormed into St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with “intent to kill a surgeon.”
Louis went on a killing spree that killed four people, including Dr. Preston Phillips before turning the gun on himself.
