Calgary police are investigating a swatting incident that occurred at the Alberta Children’s Hospital Sunday night.
Police surrounded the hospital at approximately 8:40 p.m. after receiving a call that there were people with guns inside.
Officers searched the premises for almost an hour before confirming the threat was a fake.
Similar incidents occurred at two different children’s hospitals in different cities at approximately the same time.
Police believe all three incidents may be related.
