OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma City police say three nurses were attacked with a knife by a man inside a hospital on the city’s northwest side.

Lt. Gamille Hardin said Tuesday that one of the nurses is hospitalized with undisclosed wounds.

Hardin says the man walked into the emergency room at Deaconess Hospital shortly before midnight Monday and attacked one nurse. Two other nurses tried to stop the attack and were also injured, but were not hospitalized.

Hardin says the man then locked himself in a room at the hospital and a police tactical team was called before the man was eventually arrested.

No names were immediately released.
