MIAMI (CBSMiami) - Police made an arrest Friday for one of the recent threats made against Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The suspect was identified as Juvane Hylton, 22.

The hospital confirms Hylton is an employee there.

Police say last Friday, he used a hospital phone to call in the threat, in which he said he'd use an AR-15 rifle to shoot and kill the staff.

The hospital was locked down for hours.

Police do not believe Hylton is connected to Monday's bomb threat at Jackson Memorial.

Hylton is on unpaid leave from his position as a hospital secretary.
