(NewsNation) — A witness living across from Northside Medical Hospital described a scene of chaos as a shooter is still on the loose in the busy neighborhood.
“Police came and told us to stay indoors because there was an active shooter around us,” Annie Eavenson told NewsNation.
Eavenson told NewsNation another hospital had ambulances on scene quickly and she saw some people being brought out on stretchers.
“It’s definitely very scary,” she said. “It’s a very active area, it’s in the heart of midtown.”
The shooting occurred at lunchtime, when Eavenson said the streets are full of pedestrians.
Eavenson said there continues to be a heavy police presence around the hospital and she remains on lockdown in her building.
