The pilot of a small plane who threatened to intentionally crash into a Walmart in Mississippi has landed without any injuries, Governor Tate Reeves said on Saturday.

Earlier, the police department in Tupelo, Mississippi said they had been talking directly to the pilot and had evacuated the Walmart and a gas station.

"Thankful the situation has been resolved and that no one was injured," Reeves said on Twitter.

The Tupelo Police Department said in a Facebook post that the Walmart and a nearby convenience store had been evacuated. The plane started circling over Tupelo, Mississippi, about 5:00am.
