A man who caused a disturbance at a Southern California hospital was taken into custody and a handgun was recovered Tuesday, but authorities now say there’s no evidence that he fired any shots. Noone was hurt in the incident at Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center near Los Angeles, according to reports. The suspect threw a chair through a window before pulling out a handgun at a medical office building separate from the main hospital. The man was unarmed when he surrendered without incident a short time later just outside the building, and a gun was later found. The man was described as a 34-year-old resident of nearby Lynwood, and there were unconfirmed reports that he was a patient at the hospital. Police and Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies cleared the building room by room. Downey is a city of about 110,000 people southeast of downtown Los Angeles.
