KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Law enforcement officers were at a chaotic scene Tuesday morning where KCPD told employees at Hunt Midwest SubTropolis to lock their doors and shelter in place due to man making violent threats. At about 11:40 a.m., KCPD said the man was taken into custody at 95th and Mission in Overland Park and the lockdown was lifted.
According to officers on the scene, an employee who was fired a few days ago threatened to shoot up the property. Someone called 911 after spotting that former employee on the property.
The property hosts more than 55 companies and contains more than 6 million square feet, making the search challenging. Police say he was ultimately apprehended elsewhere.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident.
