    Juvane Hylton is accused of calling in a threat to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

    Police have arrested a man who they say phoned in a threat to Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital.

    Juvane Raheem Hylton, 21, was arrested Friday on charges of making a false report about a bomb or explosive and misuse of 911, Miami-Dade Police said.

    The threat was made last Friday. According to the arrest affidavit, Hylton made a phone call to Miami-Dade police with a hospital phone and threatened to shoot and kill the staff, doctors and nurses with an AR-15 that he owned, including an AK-47.

    When he was being questioned by police, Hylton stated that the patient in the hospital room he called from asked him to help make a phone call, the affidavit stated, but after an investigation, authorities found the sole patient of that hospital room was out for a medical procedure during the time the call was made.

    Hylton's employer on his arrest form is listed as the hospital but police haven't confirmed if he's an employee.

    Hylton was being held on $12,500 bond Friday, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
