Manchester Memorial Hospital was placed into lockdown Thursday as police investigated a possible threat against a hospital employee.

Police responded to the hospital at 71 Haynes Street in Manchester around 2:30 p.m. after a female employee received a text message on her phone. The message was in Spanish, but the employeed does not speak Spanish and asked a co-worker to translate it.

According to police, the co-worker deemed the message to be a threat against the hospital employee, so administrators placed the hospital into lockdown and called police.

Police determined the threat was not credible and the lockdown was lifted around 3:30 p,m.
