Police in New Hampshire on Tuesday took into custody a suspect linked to an active shooting report at Dartmouth-Hitchcock hospital, a spokesman for the Lebanon, New Hampshire, police department said.

The hospital, the state’s largest, was locked down following reports of an active shooter, a spokesman said in an emailed message.

“The suspect involved was apprehended without incident,” New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald told reporters. He said there was no continuing threat to the public and ignored reporters’ questions as to whether anyone had been shot.

Beijing's new national security law was imposed on Tuesday and is the most radical shift in how the semi-autonomous city is run since it was handed back to China by Britain in 1997.
