LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officers have not yet determined why a man allegedly pointed a rifle at the Clark County courthouse Tuesday afternoon.
The situation prompted a large police response and lockdowns of the courthouse and nearby school buildings.
Police arrested 63-year-old Henry Campbell of Sellersburg, after he surrendered peacefully to officers in a parking lot off Watt Street on the west side of the courthouse in downtown Jeffersonville.
Campbell is charged with three felonies: pointing a firearm, criminal recklessness and intimidating with a deadly weapon. He is being held in the Clark County Jail on $250,000 full cash bond. It was unclear Tuesday night when Campbell's first court appearance would be scheduled.
Police responded to reports that Campbell pointed a rifle from his truck. They later found Campbell with the loaded rifle and more ammo in his pocket, officers said. He surrendered to officers without incident. No one was hurt.
Officers ordered lockdowns of the courthouse and two, nearby Greater Clark County Schools alternative schools for about an hour. The buildings reopened late Tuesday afternoon.
