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.

} "It was a very scary moment as Code Silver (active shooter) was called into my hospital this evening," Jewish General Hospital pharmacist Ryan Kerzner tweeted late Tuesday night. "When I was at home and listened to it, a sense of dread and terror came over me. I was really worried about my colleagues and all my patients. Thankfully, it all went off without a hitch!"


Very scary moment tonight when "Code Silver" (active shooter) was summoned to my hospital. When I heard, I was home and a feeling of dread and dread began. I was really worried about my colleagues and all my patients. Thanks to you, we finished safely!
