An armed robbery at a pharmacy in the New London suburb of Green Bay, Wisconsin sparked a partial lockdown at a nearby hospital June 13, according to a report from WBAY-TV.

According to the report, the New London Family Medical Center was placed on a controlled access status for about 40 minutes after the incident at Jernegan’s Health Mart, which is near the hospital.

The robbery occurred at around 2:30 p.m. when a man pointed a gun at pharmacy employees and demanded money and pills. He left before police arrived with a small amount of pills and no money; police are apparently still looking for the suspect.
