The Spokane Police Department locked down Shriners Hospital for Children and Monroe Street for nearly two hours Wednesday while they investigated a threatening note found on the hospital’s shuttle van.
“It was kind of an ambiguous note,” said police spokeswoman Officer Teresa Fuller.
The bomb squad and an explosives sniffing dog searched the hospital at Fifth Avenue and Monroe and found nothing. The hospital and Monroe Street were reopened around 1 p.m., two hours after a hospital employee found the note.
Police are investigating.
