On Tuesday, a bomb threat was called into the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department (SBSD) targeting Loma Linda University Medical Center, the hospital where victims of last Wednesday’s terrorist attack are being treated. No lockdowns have been issued.

Both the SBSD and Loma Linda hospital media spokesperson Susan Onuma were able to confirm the threat to Breitbart News.

“It was called in at 10:13 a.m and a code yellow alert went out to all employees and staff,” Onuma told Breitbart News. “Law enforcement is currently investigating the verifiability of the threat.” She said hospital staff are trained how to act and what to look for in these situations.

The hospital is located at 11234 Anderson Street in Loma Linda.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies were also investigating an alleged bomb threat about six miles away at Grand Terrace High School.

Danielle Bell, who is an office assistant with the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department also confirmed the threat noting it’s still being investigated and that they “don’t have any further information … We were notified by phone.”

An alleged bomb threat was also being investigated nearby at Grand Terraced High School located at 21810 Main Street in Grand Terrace.

This is a developing story.

Update: Authorities have determined that the threat is a hoax, according to KNX 1070 AM, and there is no danger to the hospital.
