OSSINING -

Officials say that a threatening text message prompted an evacuation in Ossining Tuesday.

Open Door Medical Center and adjoining offices, including the office of state Sen. David Carlucci and state Assemblywoman Sandy Galuf, were evacuated due to the threats around 1:30 p.m.

Officials say that an employee received the text directed at Open Door Medical Center, and that it was serious enough to warrant the evacuation.

Police reopened the center and office after finding no credible threat.
