Police were called to the Cape Coral Hospital ER just before 7pm last night investigating an apparent suicide.

NBC2 reports that Lee Health employees got a text message about a person with a gun that read “There is a person with a gun at (CAPE CORAL ER). RUN – HIDE – FIGHT. STAY AWAY.”

No Lee Health employees or patients at the hospital were hurt during the incident.

While the investigation is complete, no one is sure what caused the man to run into the emergency room and kill himself.
