MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Staff and visitors at Hennepin County Medical Center in downtown Minneapolis had a tense morning after a man’s threat caused the building to go into lockdown.

The incident happened at about 11 a.m. when a hospital staffer reported that a man was threatening to use a gun.

The threat triggered a hospital lockdown, and Minneapolis Police officers secured all hospital exits.

Despite a floor-by-floor search, neither a gun nor the man making the threat was found. The lockdown was lifted just before noon.
