Man sought over hospital shooting

Police in Albuquerque are searching for a man who fired a shot inside University of New Mexico Hospital.

Police spokeswoman Sgt Trish Hoffman said officers are looking for 21-year-old Daniel Cesar Dominguez-Garcia in connection with the incident.

Hoffman said Dominguez was at the hospital with his girlfriend on Tuesday afternoon when he became upset. Hoffman alleges he had assaulted his girlfriend, then fired a shot in the hallway.

No one was injured, but the hospital was locked down for about an hour while authorities searched for Dominguez.

Officers later determined Dominguez had left the area. Surveillance video showed him leaving the building.
