    Police in San Francisco, California are responding to reports of shots fired at a local hospital, a San Francisco Police Department spokesperson told Sputnik.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Just before 2:00 p.m. PDT (9:00 p.m. GMT) police responded to a report of possible shots fired at the San Francisco General Hospital as well as a loud noise in the building.

    "[SFPD’s] tactical team is currently sweeping the building to find the source of the sound," SFPD media relations told Sputnik on Thursday.

    The spokesperson noted that there is a large generator in the area which could be the source of the suspected gunshots.

    ​Medical personnel have been evacuated from the hospital, according to US media reports.
