Buffalo, NY (WBEN) A Buffalo man has been charged with threatening an attack on ECMC.

Erie County prosecutors say 35 year old Erik Sull of Buffalo made the threat Monday as he was being discharged from the hospital. "(Sull) told employees that he planned to return, blow up the hospital, and shoot people. His alleged statements placed the staff in fear that he would carry out the threats," says a statement.

Sull is scheduled to return on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. for a felony hearing. He remains in custody pending a forensic evaluation.

If convicted on the charge of making a terroristic threat, the defendant faces a maximum of 7 years in prison.
