Cleveland Clinic-Medina (Ohio) Hospital went into lockdown Tuesday afternoon after reports of an active shooter in the hospital's medical office building, though the reports were later proven to be unsubstantiated, according to Cleveland.com.

The Medina Police Department responded to reports that a woman with a gun was going around the office threatening people, though no shots had been fired, according to the report. After searching the hospital and office building, the police cleared the area.

"The hospital has been cleared. No suspect located, and no witnesses or evidence to substantiate the initial complaint of a female with a firearm. ALL CLEAR," the police posted in a Facebook update.
