Potential threat police activity at OC Saddleback Hospital – NBC Los Angeles

The Orange County Sheriff’s department posted on Twitter Sunday afternoon that a possible bomb threat had brought MPs to the MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center hospital in Laguna Hills.

“The MPs at Saddleback Hospital refer to a subject who claimed to have been there with a bomb,” said a Twitter statement from the Laguna Hills OCSD department.

“MPs have set up a perimeter and are working with security. A command post with OCFA has been set up. Please avoid the area.”

About 15 minutes later, OCSD added in a second tweet that they were investigating whether the incident was a possible stroke call.
