A bomb threat caused a lockdown at Highline Medical Center Sunday afternoon as King County Sheriff’s deputies investigated a suspicious device in a minivan parked in the garage.

Authorities said the incident started at about 3:45 p.m. when a man, who was known by the staff, walked into the emergency room and claimed to have a bomb in his car.

Shortly thereafter, the entire hospital was locked down, as well as surrounding streets.

Bomb technicians determined that the device was not explosive, subsequently ending the lockdown around 6:30pm and re-opening streets.

The man who made the threat was detained.

    Kept hearing the cops on their PA systems telling neighbors to "go back into your homes, NOW." I'm sure this idiot cost us a fortune in sheriff's department overtime.
