OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The situation unfolding outside the emergency department at the Nebraska Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon had de-escalated by about 4 p.m., authorities told 6 News.

The public was previously advised to avoid the area near 44th Street and Dewey Avenue after Omaha Police had responded to the hospital.

Nebraska Medicine said in a social media post that emergency care was still being provided — and could be accessed through another entrance — while police were on scene.

“The Emergency Department is open, but anyone needing emergency care should enter through the Clarkson Tower entrance at 42nd & Dewey where they will be escorted to the Emergency Department,” a social media post from 3:34 p.m. states.

Nebraska Medicine tweeted at 4:20 p.m. that the situation had been “resolved without incident.”
