Police reportedly arrest suspect, investigate crime scene at Lambeau Field

A man rammed his auto into five cars in the parking lot of Green Bay's famed Lambeau Field before chasing an employee with his vehicle and then crashing.

Green Bay Police in a news release said they responded to the sports facility off Lombardi Avenue around 1 p.m.

Smith said initial calls to police suggested there was an active shooter on the scene, but no weapons have been found and the public is in no danger.

The 20-year-old man in custody is a Green Bay resident and was contractor who was sacked from a job earlier this month.

Photos from the scene show one vehicle on top of another auto, and while Smith said "it's going to be a while until that particular part of the parking lot is cleared", he said it should have no interference with Saturday's scheduled home game between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings. The suspect rammed into the person's vehicle and damaged five cars in the process.

ESPN reporter and Cover 2 contributor Rob Demovsky is citing a source that says a former stadium worker tried to get into the building through the loading dock. The county's bomb squad and the fire department's hazmat units were checking the suspect's auto, which remained inside the stadium, as a precaution.

The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to play the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
