1 detained after threat at Colorado Springs hospital

KUSA - One person was detained after allegedly making threats at a Colorado Springs hospital Tuesday morning.

This came after staff at the UCHealth Memorial Hospital North campus received a code silver alert at around 10:30 a.m. warning them of an active shooter, according to UCHealth spokesperson Dan Weaver.

That information proved to be false. Weaver says there was no weapon and the situation deescalated quickly.

It’s unclear if the person who made the threats will face any criminal charges.

Operations at the hospital have since returned to normal.
