Threats Send Police To Home For Disabled

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Metro police spent Thursday evening patrolling a home for the developmentally disabled after someone called out some kind of threat over the facility's radio system.

Police said the threat happened around 6:30 p.m. and patrols continued around the Clover Bottom Developmental Center past 10 p.m. Thursday night.

Police said they were checking every building and searching every car, looking for anything suspicious.

Officials said more than 100 patients are being treated at the facility.

Police would not say exactly what the threat was.

"We haven't seen anything to make us think it was a viable threat," Metro police Captain David Imhof said. "But we want to make sure we're safe anyway."

The Clover Bottom facility is set to be closed by the state, but it was not clear whether that had anything to do with the threat.
