A shooting incident occurred at a psychiatric hospital in Concord, New Hampshire, leaving one person injured, according to police sources reported by the AP agency. The shooter is dead.

"A shooting took place today at the New Hampshire State Hospital. The situation has been brought under control in the lobby," reported Col. Mark Hall of the local police department. He further assured that all patients of the hospital are now safe.
