ORLANDO, Fla.– Orlando authorities say a male who threatened to shoot up a chiropractic practitioner's workplace is now in custody.
The guy had strolled into the Orlando Health Medical Center on East Colonial Drive Aug. 18 around 1:30 p.m. and made the spoken threat with a weapon, according to an Orlando Police Department news release.
Police got multiple 911 calls from the office with individuals stating they were terrified of leaving the structure.
“He just came within and took a look at the coffee machine and I was like ‘you can grab coffee if you want' and he resembled ‘No. If everyone's not out the door in 20 minutes everybody's getting shot,” a caller informed a 911 dispatcher.
The man stayed in the office for a few minutes prior to walking away towards Westmoreland and Colonial Drive where officers eventually detained him.
Close-by schools and companies went on lockdown until officers offered the clear.
Orlando police did not use any other details.Source: clickorlando.com
