All clear at Walter Reed military hospital after gunshot report
Authorities gave the all clear at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in suburban Washington, the biggest military hospital complex in the world, after a report of a gunshot triggered a lockdown on Monday, the U.S. Navy said.
Police found no sign of a gunshot or injuries at the sprawling 243-acre (98-hectare) campus in Bethesda, Maryland, the Navy said on its Twitter feed. A call to police reporting the sound of a gunshot triggered the lockdown of the Bethesda, Maryland, site and a massive security response.
Officers cleared the 20-story building where the gunshot was reported and found nothing, the Montgomery County Police Department said on Twitter.
Police said non-emergency patient care at Walter Reed was suspended for the day.
The Walter Reed report came after an unfounded call of a gunshot at the Washington Navy Yard sparked a heavy police response on Thursday.
