DARBY, Pa. (AP) - A shooting at a suburban Philadelphia hospital campus has killed one worker and injured two other people.

Prosecutor Jack Whelan says one of the injured is the gunman.

The Yeadon police department says the shooting happened Thursday afternoon at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, a few miles southwest of downtown Philadelphia.

The department says a suspect is in custody but it doesn't have any more information because all its officers are at the scene.

A hospital spokeswoman says the shooting was reported at its wellness center, which is attached to the hospital by a pedestrian bridge.

The 213-bed teaching hospital is part of the Mercy Health System, a large Catholic health care network serving the region.
