PUEBLO -

St. Mary Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo is no longer on lockdown. Officials told News 5 that everything is all clear.

The public was advised to stay out of the area and keep a safe distance away. Police said a man called in and threatened the hospital, so all were advised to leave as a lockdown was put in place.

Police said the man was suicidal and was instructed to go to the hospital to seek help. When he arrived he had his gun with him. Police have since spoken to the man and tell News 5 he is being treated there now.

No one was allowed in or out of the hospital until police were able to make contact with the man.
