New Orleans police say two bystanders have been shot and wounded after an argument outside a hospital culminated in gunfire

NEW ORLEANS — Two bystanders were shot and wounded after an argument outside a hospital culminated in gunfire Thursday, New Orleans police said.

A woman was arguing with a man outside University Medical Center before she fired several shots, striking a woman outside the hospital and a man inside the building, police said.

The woman suspected of firing the shots was arrested and the man she was arguing with has been detained for questioning, authorities said. A lockdown at the hospital was lifted shortly after midday.

However, emergency patients were directed to a different area, The Times-Picayune / The New Orleans Advocate reported.

Edwards said she was in a group of about 20 people whom the nurse led into a closet. Doctors, nurses and volunteers began frantically texting for more information or to tell people they loved them, she said.

“You could tell some people were super distressed and freaked out,” Edwards recalled.

She said the nurse got word that it was safe about seven minutes later.
