Patient fires starter pistol in Oklahoma ED

From NewsOK:

A patient fired a starter pistol loaded with blanks inside a Yukon hospital Wednesday night, hospital officials said.

The man, whose name was not released, had been detained by El Reno police on a trespassing complaint, but complained of chest pains and was taken to Integris Canadian Valley Hospital, Integris spokeswoman Brooke Cayot said.

The man was combative at the hospital and was put in a room by himself while security was notified. The starter pistol was fired once while the man was alone in the room, Cayot said.
