St. James Healthcare

St. James Healthcare went on lockdown Thursday evening due to a suicidal female armed with a handgun.

St. James Healthcare was on lockdown for about an hour Thursday evening after a suicidal woman locked herself in a secluded area of the hospital with a handgun. After Butte-Silver Bow police negotiators spoke with her, she came out and the incident ended, said Butte-Silver Bow County Sheriff Ed Lester.

The emergency room was not disrupted, the hospital was always operational, and the patients and surrounding community were never in danger, he said.
