Yesterday we reported as it was happening that Bridgeport Hospital was in a lockdown after two men displayed weapons in the emergency room.  I first heard it on the Bridgeport Police radio but held back making it public just in case it was a false report or over reaction.  At 7:30pm American Medical Response told all ambulance to avoid Bridgeport Hospital until further notice.  At 7:33 Fairfield Police made a announcement to all their patrol officers and that is when we went public with the information.  Many broadcasters said Bridgeport Hospital said they were not on lockdown.  On the 5:30pm news on WTNH they said Bridgeport Hospital said no person ever displayed a gun at the hospital.  We then ask, why was AMR told to avoid the area, Bridgeport Police not only report a lockdown but also warn other police departments?
