PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon Health & Science University Hospital board approved a plan Thursday to issue firearms to its 25-member police force.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1mlpIq1 ) the university’s public safety director, Greg Moawad, says the move was prompted by a situation in which an armed man threatened a staff member. He says it took Portland police 14 minutes to respond.
