Bullet hits patient in Crozer-Chester Medical Center


A bullet fired from outside of Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland late last night struck a patient inside of the hospital, according to officials.

Around midnight, shots were reported outside the hospital, possibly coming from the area of the helipad, according to the Breaking News Network, which monitors police and fire scanners.

The bullet went through a first-floor window at the hospital and struck an adult female patient in the abdomen, said Grant Gegwich, spokesman for Crozer-Chester Medical Center.

"She's doing great and she's in stable condition," Gegwich said. "She's expected to fully recover."

Delaware County officials are going to hold a press conference shortly before noon on the incident.
