St. Charles Bend on lockdown yesterday

St Charles Medical Center in Bend was put on lockdown for a time yesterday afternoon. According to Bend Police, the hospital locked its doors for about an hour as police investigated a possible threat outside of St. Charles. People could leave but were not allowed to enter. Police were not able to find the person they were looking for so the lockout was lifted.
