SALT LAKE CITY -- Police say a lockdown at the University Hospital was likely because of a hunter.
Officers locked down the hospital and the Jewish Community Center around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported seeing a man wearing camouflage and carrying binoculars and a gun behind the hospital.
Officers didn't find the man but believe he was just going into the foothills to hunt.
Lt. Lynn Rohland with the University of Utah Police Department says, "It is open season for hunting and you can hunt behind the hospital in Dry Canyon and in this region."
The lockdown was lifted about 6:30 p.m.
