State building cleared after 'unfounded' report of armed man

(AP) — State officials evacuated a government building on Wednesday after "unfounded" reports of a man in the building possibly with a gun.

Kentucky State Police said in a news release the complaint appears to be unfounded.

Workers and visitors to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services building in Frankfort were evacuated. The cabinet often handles sensitive family issues including foster care and adoption cases.

State police and local law enforcement officials were still searching the building at about noon on Wednesday. State police officials said there is "no credible information" that a person is at the building with a gun.
