A man was arrested Sunday in connection with a threat that prompted a Central Florida hospital to be placed on lockdown.

The Flagler County Sheriff's Office said Kelsey Anderson, 36, who is a partner of an employee at AdventHealth Palm Coast, was arrested on a charge of making a written threat to kill or injure.

Deputies said Anderson sent a Facebook message threatening to shoot workers at the hospital.

Anderson was located and arrested, and the lockdown was lifted around 6 p.m. Sunday.
