Social media and our phones started blowing up with requests to find out what was going on at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital in Lake Charles.

Early reports were that calls were made to law enforcement in reference to a person with a weapon in the hospital, where there were reports of a heavy police presence.

We then found out that the Lake Charles Police Department with assistance from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's office responded to the call.
