(Reuters) - One person was shot in the leg in the basement of the main building for the Dayton VA Medical Center in Ohio at about midday on Monday and a suspect has been taken into custody, a medical center spokesman said.

Authorities are searching the Veterans Health Administration facility room-to-room to ensure that there are no other suspects and the campus remains locked down, spokesman Ted Froats said.
