(Oklahoma City-AP) -- No injuries are reported and one person is in custody after a shooting at an Oklahoma City hospital Tuesday morning.

Police say the shooting occurred about 11:45 Tuesday morning while an employee of Oklahoma Heart Hospital was on the phone with police.

Police Captain Jessica Cummins says the employee said she wanted to file a report against the father of her baby because he pulled a gun on her at work Monday.

Cummins says the dispatcher then heard apparent gunshots in the background and the suspect was chased by hospital security to Mercy Hospital.

Cummins says more shots were fired in a stairwell and the suspect then locked himself in a room in the intensive care unit before being arrested about 12:30 Tuesday afternoon.

Cummins says a weapon was recovered at Mercy.

The name of the suspect hasn't been released.
