A gunman has opened fire at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital in New York City, causing multiple victims, police say.

Dr Bello was listed on the hospital's website as a family medicine physician.

As many as five or six people may have been wounded, the Times said, citing a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

A police source told PIX11 News the shooter, who may be a doctor, has barricaded himself inside the facility. The NYPD's official Twitter feed then posted an update saying, "The shooter is deceased".

Witnesses are describing the moments of panic and horror during a deadly shooting inside a Bronx hospital Friday.
