(Before It's News)

A suspicious device found Monday afternoon in the radiology lab of the VA Hospital in Dallas led to an evacuation and lockdown that lasted more than two hours.

All of the staff and patients from outpatient services were evacuated and almost all of the patients from the hospital were escorted out of the building, while the patients with the most critical conditions remained in their rooms with the doors closed and locked.

The bomb squad, as well as a HAZMAT team, responded to the scene to investigate. The device, however, turned out to be an oxygen tank with some attached wires leading to a box. Police say the manner in which the device was placed indicated it was done to “cause alarm.”

The incident unfolded around 2 p.m. and by 4:30 p.m., authorities had given the “all clear.”

There were no reported injuries and it’s unclear who left the device inside the hospital.
