A Memphis man was arrested Thursday (February 25) after reportedly threatening staff at a Germantown clinic. According to WREG, police were called to Campbell Clinic around 10:40 a.m. after an armed man allegedly stood in the clinic's entryway and threatened staff with a long gun. No shots were fired, and he fled the scene before officers arrived.

Germantown police identified the suspect as 24-year-old Cordarius Bush, of Memphis. A statement from the clinic said the incident was a "domestic, interpersonal issue," WMC 5 reports.
