LAYTON — Davis Hospital and Medical Center was on lockdown for nearly two hours Monday night after someone called and threatened to bomb the facility.

Layton Police Sgt. Jeff Roderick said the call came in a little after 7 p.m., and the lockdown lasted until about 8:45 p.m.

He said nothing like a bomb was found in the hospital during a search.

Roderick said he didn’t believe the threat was real but that police were investigating to determine where the call had come from.

Roderick said when the hospital was on lockdown, people were kept out, except through one emergency door, where those who entered were searched by a police officer and a security guard.

He said ambulances and other vehicles that could go to another hospital were directed during that time.
