The lockdown has been
lifted at Brandon Hospital, and the culprit of an afternoon Twitter firestorm:
A cordless drill.
Deputies say the suspicious
person call that prompted the lockdown was actually a maintenance worker
carrying a cordless drill.
There were several tweets
by people in the area reporting some sort of gunmen at the facility. Those reports were false.
The hospital was on
lockdown for a brief period of time. All operations are back to normal.
