BOSTON — Boston police and hospital security staff are considering plans to link their radio communications and to conduct training for "active shooter'' scenarios after a psychiatric patient was shot dead last week at a doctor's office.

Security directors from 18 hospitals met yesterday at Boston police headquarters to discuss security, intelligence sharing and other issues facing hospital safety personnel, said police Superintendent in Chief Daniel Linskey.
