(Missoula Current) The Missoula Police Department responded to reports of a disturbance and a weapon threat at the Veterans Affairs clinic Thursday afternoon, and one person was taken into custody.
Missoula police spokesperson Lydia Arnold said officers responded shortly after 2 p.m. to an “active and evolving situation.”
The VA Outpatient Clinic was closed as a result, along with several surrounding business. All reopened later in the day and resumed service.
