Authorities say a small plane has landed safely in Mississippi after its pilot at one point threatened to crash the plane into a Walmart.

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves announced on Twitter that the “situation has been resolved and that no one was injured.” The plane landed and the subject was taken into custody, according to Benton County Sheriff Dispatcher Connie Strickland.

Earlier Saturday morning, Gov. Reeves had warned residents near Tupelo, Mississippi, to "be on alert" after police said a pilot flying a small plane over the town threatened to crash into a Walmart.

The plane started circling over Tupelo, Mississippi, about 5 a.m. ET. Several hours later, police said the plane was on the move north of the city.
