L&M Hospital Went Into Full Lockdown Following Perceived Threat

Lawerence & Memorial Hospital went into full lockdown mode on Tuesday following a perceived threat called into the hospital, a spokesperson said. 

The lockdown went into effect at around 3:25 p.m. after an alleged threat was called into the Emergency Department, Michael O'Farrell, an L&M spokesperson said.

New London police and fire department were called to investigation with help from the hospital's public safety, O'Farrell said. 

Police were able to trace the call back to Aleksey Kuperman, 51, of New London and he faces charges for first-degree threatening and breach of peace.

By 4:20 p.m., officials cleared the threat and the hospital resumed normal operations. 

Kuperman's bond was set to $2,500.
