A man believed to be the father of a patient has taken at least two people hostage at a Texas hospital.

It was not immediately clear if the man was armed.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said it believed the man was a distraught parent of a patient and at least two people were being held hostage at the Tomball Regional Medical Centre, near Houston.

A supervisor at the county’s emergency dispatch centre said the situation was in the critical care unit and began around 7pm local time.

The hospital is on a 150-acre campus about 30 miles north-west of Houston.
