(KSL News) There were a few scary moments this evening when a man made a threatening phone call to the Intermountain Memorial Clinic at 2000 S. 900 East in Sugarhouse.

Lt. Dave Hoffman of the Salt Lake City Police Department explained, "He'd called in and wanted some lithium, and they told him no, that they don't prescribe that [there]. He said that he was going to come down and shoot the place up."

The man did go to the clinic with a coat under his arm. Officers arrested him and found he wasn't armed. They haven't released his name.
