Two armed men were taken into custody after a North Carolina hospital was placed on lockdown Saturday night, police said.

Winston-Salem police told WXII-TV that the two people in custody had allegedly fled the scene of a break-in near Baptist. Authorities said a homeowner had been grazed by a bullet.

Police said the suspects allegedly entered the home and drew their weapons, but the homeowners fired back and the suspects fled.

One suspect was caught at a Baptist parking garage and the other was caught on a street near Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, according to WRAL-TV. The suspects haven’t been identified.

The lock down at the hospital started to be eased at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday morning. However, the first visitors couldn’t leave without a security escort.
