A hospital was locked down after a man believed to be armed entered the premises after he had just evaded the police.
Emergency services were called to Robina train station, on the Gold Coast, at around 11am on Tuesday to reports of an armed man, but were unable to locate him on arrival.
The nearby Robina Hospital was placed on lockdown at around 12pm after a ‘Code Black’ was activated after a man entered the emergency department and appeared to be armed.
The police arrived at the hospital shortly after and arrested the man with a gel blaster without incident around 1:00 p.m.
A spokesperson for Gold Coast Health told USA Online Post Australia the lockdown was lifted shortly after as the incident had now been resolved.
“While ambulance arrivals have been diverted away from Robina Hospital, we are now going back to business as usual,” the spokesperson said.
More to come.
