MERIDIAN, Miss. – Two people were arrested Sunday in a fatal shooting at a hospital that may have been related to an earlier murder-suicide attempt, police said.
One of the suspects was arrested at Rush Foundation Hospital (search) and the other turned himself in to police, Meridian Police Chief Benny Dubose said. Both were expected to be charged Monday.
The man fatally shot at the hospital was the son of a man who Dubose said shot himself and a woman at a Meridian home Sunday morning in an apparent murder-suicide attempt. Dubose said one of the suspects is the woman's son.
The man and woman found at the home did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
The fatal shooting victim's name was not immediately released by authorities.
Police closed off the hospital for several hours after the shooting to search for the gunmen. The hospital was reopened by Sunday evening.
