Patient at Laramie hospital found with firearm
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie was
put on lockdown
last night (Saturday) when hospital staff
discovered one patient had a firearm because she was afraid her
husband might attack her there.
Laramie Police Department Commander Dale Stalder says the whole
matter apparently stemmed from a domestic dispute
The woman was admitted to the hospital on Friday. Her husband
showed up later and was belligerent toward the hospital staff
He was arrested and charged with interference and cited for
carrying a concealed firearm without a permit. He later posted bond
and was released.
Stalder says it is believed the woman had a friend sneak a
firearm into the hospital so she could defend herself if her
husband were to show up again.
Police convinced the woman to give up the firearm.
