COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The JPMorgan Chase building on Polaris Parkway was placed on lock down after employees spotted a man with a gun outside the building.
Columbus Police say they got reports of a man who had a gun standing in front of the corporate building on Tuesday morning. They say no shots were fired.
Police tell NBC4 the man was not threatening anyone or anything, but he did have a concealed carry gun on his waist which prompted some employees to become nervous. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office added that the man was legally abiding by Ohio’s concealed carry handgun law.
There is no immediate threat to the public or employees.
Police are sweeping the building now as a precautionary measure. One part of the corporate building remains on lock down, but it is expected to reopen once the security sweep is over.
