A rogue pilot is threatening to crash a plane into a Mississippi Walmart as terrified residents watch the skies.
Local news reports identified the pilot as Cory Patterson of Shannon, Mississippi, citing multiple law enforcement and local authorities.
On Facebook Saturday morning, Patterson posted what appeared to be a suicide note.
“Sorry everyone. Never actually wanted to hurt anyone. I love my parents and sister this isn’t your fault. Goodbye,”
At 5 a.m., the purported kamikaze flyer, who authorities said is operating a possibly stolen Beechcraft King plane, contacted police and informed them of his alarming plans, according to a press release from the Tupelo Police Department.
Police have been speaking directly to the pilot and worked with Walmart and nearby stores to evacuate customers.
“State law enforcement and emergency managers are closely tracking this dangerous situation. All citizens should be on alert and aware of updates from the Tupelo Police Department,” said Mississippi governor Tate Reeves.
