HOUSTON (AP) – Authorities now say they do not consider an incident at a Texas hospital involving a distraught father to be a hostage situation. It was not immediately clear if the man was armed.
    
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday night 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 Center. A supervisor at the county’s emergency dispatch center said the situation was in the critical care unit and began around 7 p.m.
    
The hospital is on a 150-acre campus about 30 miles northwest of Houston.
    
Police in Tomball did not immediately respond to a message. No other information was immediately available.
