ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police are searching for a man who fired a shot Tuesday inside University of New Mexico Hospital.

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

Hoffman says Dominguez was at the hospital with his girlfriend Tuesday afternoon when he became upset. Hoffman alleges he beat up 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 was gone from the area. Surveillance video showed him leaving the building after the shooting.
