LEBANON, N.H. (AP) -

UPDATE 9/12 @ 6:25 P.M.

One person was taken into custody in connection with reports of an active shooter at New Hampshire's largest hospital.
    
New Hampshire's attorney general says a patient was killed at the state's largest hospital by a family member.
    
Attorney General Gordon MacDonald gave more information Tuesday night on what prompted an active shooter alert inside the intensive care unit at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
    
He identified the slain patient as a 70-year-old woman and said the shooter was a relative. He says no one else was injured.
    
Authorities have said a person was taken into custody while trying to leave the grounds of the hospital.
    
Rhode Island State Police have identified the person taken into custody as a Rhode Island resident. A state police spokeswoman says the suspect's car had Rhode Island license plates so New Hampshire police reached out for help in identifying the person.
