TONASKET – A report of a shooting threat against North Valley Hospital ended up being defused May 4.

The Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office received a report that a woman was going to take a gun to the hospital and shoot everyone. Her father was a patient there and was about to be released.

Sheriff Tony Hawley said a deputy arrived and escorted the woman into the hospital to pick up her father.

“There was no information to support the threat,” he said. “There was no lockdown or arrest.”
