A man has been detained after a threat was made against an Anaheim hospital Friday morning.

The man was taken into custody in Garden Grove, police said.

The incident unfolded after a man called the KTLA newsroom about 10:15 a.m. indicating he was on his way to Anaheim Global Medical Center with a gun.

KTLA alerted authorities, who then responded to the scene.

Aerial video from Sky 5 showed several police units outside the hospital, but the hospital remained opened.

About 11:45 a.m., police converged on a shopping center in Garden Grove, where a man was seen handcuffed and sitting near a Target. It is unclear how authorities determined he was the man who allegedly made the threatening phone call. The man did not have a gun when he was detained.

No further details about the incident have been released. It is unclear whether the man called any other location.
