Armed officer barricades himself in Istanbul psychiatric unit

An armed police officer receiving psychiatric treatment at an Istanbul hospital barricaded himself into a room and attempted to commit suicide, causing panic, officials have said.

Earlier media reports had said the man had taken doctors and other staff hostage at Cerrahpasa hospital in the Turkish city.

A hospital spokesman told Dogan news agency that all staff have been evacuated from the psychiatry unit and police negotiators are trying to persuade the man not to kill himself, the Daily Mail reports.
