A nurse was fatally stabbed and four others were hurt Tuesday in an isolated attack at a medical complex in East Texas, The Associated Press reports.

Police detained a man after the stabbings, which happened around 7 a.m. Tuesday at the Ambulatory Surgical Center of Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview.

Longview Police Officer Kristie Brian had no immediate information on charges or a possible motive for the stabbings.

The name of the nurse who died and further details on her duties were not immediately released.

"The Good Shepherd family tragically lost a member of our team this morning," said Steve Altmiller, president and chief executive officer of the Good Shepherd Health System.

A visitor who was stabbed is in critical condition, hospital spokeswoman Victoria Ashworth said, while two other visitors and a hospital worker were in good condition. Their names also weren't released.

"All of the victims were taken to the emergency center for assessment and treatment," Altmiller said. "This was an isolated incident that was diligently handled by the Longview Police Department and our Good Shepherd response team."

The suspect was not hurt, Ashworth said.

About 120 miles southeast of Dallas, Good Shepherd Medical Center is a 425-bed acute-care hospital.
