A massive police presence was reported at the hospital’s flagship campus, evidenced by images and videos posted to social media. NBC Chicago reported.

A Twitter user shared unconfirmed information about the incident, in which they claimed there was “a call from a person with a gun at Northwestern Hospital.”

“Caller says a nurse is being held hostage, the hospital is on lockdown. #SWAT rolls! #Chicago #ChicagoScanner.”
