Police received the call about the shooting shortly after 2 a.m. local time, Titusville Police said.

A motive is unknown in the shooting on the third floor of the Parrish Medical Center.

The victims were an elderly female patient and a female hospital employee, who were sitting in the patient's room, Titusville Police Chief John Lau said Sunday.
