SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Some parts of a Spokane hospital were temporarily locked down Friday night due to a report of a man with a gun.
KXLY-TV reports (http://is.gd/7aXIoV) police searched Holy Family Hospital but didn't find anyone suspicious. The hospital was reopened about 45 minutes later.
Spokane police say the case likely began as a shoplifting incident at a nearby Rite Aid store.
