The man accused of threatening doctors and workers at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland a week ago has plead not guilty.

51-year-old Matthew Ganz is being held on $50,000 bail after he was arrested in Kennewick last Monday evening.

He was located and caught by Kennewick officers after Richland police and other units swarmed to the hospital. Ganz had entered the facility shortly before 7pm, had what witnesses said appeared to be a gun in his pocket, and threatened to shoot people.

He was seen on closed circuit security cameras but left before he could be caught. He is a worker at the facility, but it has not been disclosed as to what position he held there.

According to reports, he appeared to be verbally suicidal during the incident.
