According to WMTW, Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston is currently under a lockdown.

The lockdown is in place due to a threat.

The threat came in via phone at 9:15 AM.  The facility went into lockdown at 9:30 AM

While it was vague, the call seemed to indicate the threat of self-violence or violence against those at the hospital.  Out of an abundance of caution, CMMC security staff chose to lock the facility down.

According to a Lewiston Police Department spokesperson, they have several officers on the scene.

No visitors are being allowed inside and officers are helping to screen patients at the emergency room.
