The newspaper, citing dispatchers, also reported that a bomb went off inside the facility as well about a half-hour after the shooting — forcing first responders to set up their staging area further away from the health clinic. That report could not be independently confirmed.

Dispatchers say the event unfolded around 11 a.m. local time, according to Fox9.
