ST. LOUIS (AP) - A spokesman said medical center in south St. Louis County went on lockdown after a report of an armed intruder at a hospice house.

St. Anthony's Medical Center media relations coordinator Joe Poelker said the report came into security about 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

Poelker said the de Greeff Hospice House is on the medical center campus, but is in a separate building from the hospital.

He said St. Louis County police are on scene and that St. Anthony's has increased its own security.

The St. Louis County police would not provide details.
