Some scary moments at Memorial Health late last night leave a 16-year-old boy in custody. Savannah-Chatham police tell us about 9:15pm last night, three juveniles walked into the lobby of the hospital and at some point at least one of them pulled a gun.

Memorial security was alerted of the situation. They in turn called Savannah-Chatham police. The juveniles got to the second floor but ran. Police and Memorial security guards caught two of the juveniles on hospital grounds.

The juvenile with the gun was then taken to the Youth Detention Center where he's facing charges. The other juvenile was released to his guardians. One juvenile escaped.

Detectives are still trying to find out why they came to the hospital with a gun.
