MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Regions Hospital was locked down for about 20 minutes Thursday night because of a man wielding a knife.

The emergency room was evacuated during the lockdown, which started around 6:55 p.m.

A man in an automobile was standing outside the emergency room, making threats, while a woman and an infant sat in the vehicle.

Police used a Taser to subdue the man.

The hospital is now clear and open for normal activity.

The man is now in custody, and he is being treated for non-life threatening, self-inflicted injuries.

Neither the woman nor the infant were harmed in the incident, police say.
