    The situation was unfolding in the critical care unit and began around 7pm local time, AP reported, citing an emergency dispatch center official.
    The suspect has been identified as a distraught father of a hospital patient, KHOU reports. According to KHOU 11 reporter Jeremy Desel, the man is thought to be in possession of an assault rifle.

    Our papers call him 'gunman' so I assume armed. http://www.news.com.au/world/north-a...-1227181182126

    Neither the state nor the defense team are saints, and there is usually plenty of incompetence to go around on both sides of the courtroom.

    Seems to be very little information so far. It worries me for all of the patients in ICU. Most of them are there because they need constant care. I hope the man doing this is allowing care to continue to the patients. Sounds like a very emotionally charged situation. Hopefully hospital staff and LE can talk this guy down.

    "Authorities now say they do not consider an incident at a Texas hospital involving a distraught father to be a hostage situation.

    The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Saturday night that a man was distraught about his son's medical condition and was with him inside a hospital room in the critical care unit of the Tomball Regional Medical Center. The sheriff's office said it was still unclear whether the man was armed.

    Authorities had earlier said the man was believed to be holding at least two hostages."

    "According to officials, the man is inside the hospital room with his son in the critical care unit. The sheriff's office said it was unclear whether the man was armed.

    The man has not made any threats or demands, said Detective Jimmy Harral of the Tomball Police Department. No hospital employees were being held hostage, he said.


    Authorities had earlier said the man was believed to be holding at least two hostages."

    "A police spokesman says a father who became distraught over his son's condition at a southeast Texas hospital and caused a standoff did have a gun and pointed it at a nurse."
