A possible terroristic threat was made to the Huntsville Memorial Hospital regarding Sam Houston State University on Jan. 25.
“The threat said that people would be coming into the hospital soon from Sam Houston State University,” David Hammonds, SPHR Associate Vice President for Human Resources and Risk Management said.
The call was received at approximately 2:40 p.m. from an anonymous party.
Both the Huntsville Police Department and the SHSU Police Department have coordinated their efforts in an ongoing investigation of the potential threat.
Lieutenant James Barnes felt that the window for the threat to take place is closed, but states that both departments have taken this incident as a serious threat and not just a prank.
HPD and UPD urge everyone to report suspicious activity to the Huntsville Police Department, or to call 911 in an emergency situation.
