A gunman opened fire inside a Manhattan hospital on Thursday night before barricading himself in a bathroom, sources said.

The 65-year-old man fired 5 or 6 shots inside Memorial Sloan Kettering’s urgent care facility on East 67th Street at about 8:45 p.m., law enforcement sources said. 
He remained barricaded as of 10:30 p.m.
No injuries were immediately reported, police said.

The NYPD said their hostage negotiation and emergency service units were on scene.

The department’s 19 Precinct urged the public to avoid the area.
