Man threatens to shoot wife, self in medical center

An East Tennessee husband will face charges for a threat he made against his wife that ended with an entire healthcare facility being evacuated.

Authorities say Christopher Britt of Grainger County threatened to shoot himself, then his wife. It happened Monday at the Blaine Medical Center.

Both had appointments at the center when Britt apparently lost his temper.

Crews had to close down the facility as a precaution.

They arrested Britt sometime later.

The sheriff says a similar incident happened one week ago.
