OKLAHOMA CITY –  The all clear has been given after a bomb threat was made towards an Oklahoma City hospital.

Just before 11 p.m. Sunday, an unidentified man called NewsChannel 4 using an unknown number.

He muttered something about Oklahomans hating gay people and said there were “two bombs” at Deaconess Hospital.

The man claimed there was one bomb on the third floor and one in the parking lot that were set to go off at 8 a.m. Monday.

NewsChannel 4’s Assignment Editor who answered the phone called police immediately.

Officers say the hospital also received a bomb threat via the phone.

Police did a sweep on the hospital and put the hospital on a brief lockdown, but no threat was found.
