Authorities in New Britain say two people have been shot at a rehabilitation hospital and one person is in custody.

Mayor Timothy O'Brien said Wednesday night in an interview with NBC30 television that a suspect has been arrested and is a hospital employee. He said he did not know the conditions of the people shot.

The Hartford Courant reports that police said a suspect was arrested at about 7 p.m. outside a home on Helen Drive.

The shootings took place at the Hospital for Special Care, a private nonprofit facililty specializing in rehabilitation and longterm acute-care.

A hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday night she did not immediately have details, and a New Britain police dispatcher said no one was available to comment.
