Our own Maria Boynton was visiting a friend at Emory St. Joseph's in Sandy Springs this evening as a Code Silver was issued over the public address system.

"I am at Emory Hospital at St. Joseph's, in Sandy Springs GA, where a person with a gun, and described as a 'visitor', has apparently shot and killed themselves.

I was in a room on the second floor when, at approximately 5:50 pm EST, we were told there was a "Code Silver" and we needed to barricade the door. A family member, who was in the waiting room, was told to get into a bathroom.

The video is from the 5th Floor where the shooting apparently occurred."

UPDATE: Sandy Springs Police have confirmed that a man has committed suicide outside the room of a family member.
