A polling place was threatened after a person was told they were at the wrong location Tuesday morning. 

According to the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office, a person went to Bethany Baptist Church on East 105th Street and was turned away from voting because they were at the wrong location. The person then threatened to come back with a gun. 

Following the threat, the board of elections called the sheriff's office and their detectives and Impact Unit are still investigating to determine who made the threat. 

There has been extra security placed at the polling location, and voting continues as usual.
