No one was hurt and everything has since been cleared, hospital spokesman Barry Morgan said in an email. It was known to the hospital, he added, without elaborating.
After reports of a possible shooter emerged, hospital officials invoked so-called "Code Silver" protocols. Staff evacuated to designated areas, including the patient's room, and locked the doors, Morgan said. Police officers soon arrived at the facility, but found no active threats.
A spokesperson for the Montreal Police Department said Wednesday morning it could not immediately provide information on what happened at the hospital or whether an investigation was ongoing.
