RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Bomb threats have been made at the Reno-Sparks Tribal Health Center, according to tribal sergeants at the scene.

According to Deputy Avina with the Washoe County Sheriff's Office, police are assisting Reno-Sparks Indian Colony Tribal Police. Security made a call to tribal police, who then called the WCSO for assistance to help, after an ex-employee entered the Reno-Sparks Tribal Health Center at 1715 Kuenzli St. and made threats to employees.

Kuenzli is closed for one block (Kietzke Lane to one block west), according to our photographer Kausik Bhakta at the scene. He says FBI is on scene, and tribal police are armed with guns.
