Young said that she was arrested for homicide, but it will be her Prosecutor’s Office that will file the charges against her.

According to a police statement released on Saturday, agents specializing in negotiation were sent to the hospital when the death of Jerry Gilland was learned to convince the armed woman that she leave the room and surrender.

Police asked people not to go near the scene and the area of ‚Äč‚ÄčAdventHealth Hospital where the events occurred was evacuated to protect staff and patients.

According to Young, in this terminally ill area, located on the 11th floor of the hospital, most of the patients are connected to respirators, so evacuation was very difficult.
