      Walker Baptist Medical Center was evacuated after a caller to 911 warned there was a bomb at the hospital and another under a bridge on Highway 69. The call happened around 8:30 a.m.

      Patients were evacuated to the parking lot, where a hospital official said one women gave birth. Some patients were sent to other medical facilities, and less critical patients were taken to area churches.

      Because the exact bridge wasn't specified, authorities blocked all bridges on the highway and checked them.

      No bombs were found.{}Police are following leads on suspects, but do not have any information available at this time.

      The baby, Kylie Jordan, and her mother will return home Sunday.
