AURORA, Colo. — An as-yet-unidentified man entered the Children’s Hospital Colorado administrative building, traveled to a sixth-floor conference room and began to throw chairs out of the windows, the Aurora Police Department said Monday afternoon.

The man was injured by glass and is being treated. On release, he will be jailed on felony damage to property and other miscellaneous charges, police said.
