Forty-two-year-old Fabian Primera was charged and booked into the Clark County Jail

On Friday (Nov. 10)  at 11:36 a.m., an unknown person texted “Active shooter at legacy hospital” to Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA), the regional 9-1-1 dispatch center.  The GPS showed the phone was near Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital (LSCH).  

Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies were already on scene after being dispatched to an unrelated transient problem near LSCH. Deputies communicated with LSCH security, and the hospital transitioned into lockdown status.  

Deputies on scene did not observe any unusual behavior or indicators of any active threat. Throughout this time, no other 9-1-1 calls occurred.  Per LSCH protocol, ambulances were also diverted.      

Through investigation, CCSO deputies were able to link the cell phone number to 42-year-old Fabian Primera. CCSO deputies had contact with Primera on Thursday (Nov. 9) evening related to a welfare check call. 

Based on clothing description from the previous evening, CCSO deputies searched the area around LSCH. Primera was located just west of the LSCH campus about 30 minutes after sending the text.  Primera was in possession of the cellular phone used to send the text.  

The incident was confirmed to be a hoax and the lockdown at LSCH was lifted.   

Primera was arrested for False Reporting and Interference with a Health Care Facility. Primera was booked into the Clark County Jail.
